Well, for the GNU GuixSD Guix will essentially build-depend on guile, not perl.
So for upstream removing the perl dependency would not hurt. Of course this
depends on how long libdde is going to be used in the future. It seems like the
Rump kernel is the way forward. (Samuel, how's the sound and USB presentation
progressing for FOSDEM 2016?)

I'm really longing for a GNU distribution of GNU/Hurd, (and GNU/Linux) to
counteract the catastrophic trail the Debian developers are heading, getting
themselves locked in in cooperation with commercial agendas.
