Debian Perl package updates

Now that Stretch has been released, the Perl modules that I am an uploader for and for which there have been version updates waiting to be packaged can now be worked on, either by me or by others of the Debian pkg-perl team.  This included the following 9 packages:

libpgobject-perl   
libpgobject-simple-perl     
libpgobject-simple-role-perl   
libpgobject-type-bigfloat-perl 
libpgobject-type-bytestring-perl
libpgobject-type-datetime-perl 
libpgobject-type-json-perl 
libpgobject-util-dbmethod-perl  
libtemplate-plugin-latex-perl     

 Checked the debian-policy package again on 20 June & found that 4.0.0-1 is now in unstable, so will be updating that in the packages I do.

Noted during a pkg-perl LHF (Low-hanging fruits) session in IRC debian-perl that both the Standards version up to 4.0.0  as well as debhelper to version 10, were getting updated.  Checked the debhelper package in Debian and Ubuntu;  10.x is in stretch as well as jessie-backports (but not jessie itself as it only has 9.2x), as well as yakkety (16.10) and xenial-backports (but not xenial itself as that only has 9.2x).  All in all; it looks like it's better to also move them to debhelper 10, and if there are any issues with building for older distributions it just won't be able to do a no-change backport to them.
