I don't have a "clean" Windows box at the moment, but the next time
I'm setting up a development environment on a Windows box, I'll
definitely give it a try.
I read the description and it sounds great. For instance, last time I
tried, I couldn't cleanly install Devel::NYTProf on Windows. It
would've been helpful if it was already there in the first place.

I still use 5.8.x for any professional development I'm doing, though,
so I won't be doing any extensive testing as 5.8.x isn't planned.
For some reason unknown to me, even the most recent Solaris 11 still
comes with perl 5.8.4 and so that's what I need to use when deploying.
