Ain't asking you nor anyone. Ain't actually care, activetstate's perl
being just another stupid windows program done badly. Can't promise,
but will try to post my workarounds to that particular combination
on list (never demanded to include them).
The original mail was more of a word of warning for anyone unhappy to
work with the sh%t.

Aside from that, any chance of making Git.xs optional (enabled by
default, but disableable)? Disabling Git.xs will disable related
scripts, sure, but also gives you an installation with one external
(libperl) dependency less (probably with ability to install git and
Git.xs separately).
