Why is there a requirement for Perl IO of this version?

If I go over the mailinglist messages from the pastr months I see people
reporting installing per-MailTools 2.02 via yum and not listing per-IO
as a requirement. It seems you needed a specific perl-IO version to get
perl-MailTools working but why does MailScanner insist to use that
version of perl-IO?

I will see if a small modification of the MailScanner program will fix
this dependency issue.
