This is a good example of why Microsoft
has nothing to fear from open source.

Of course, to be fair, something like
this would never happen with the Perl

By "core CVS development tree", do you mean what's in CVS at
:pserver:address@hidden:/home2/cvsroot?  If so, that code is
built every night on a bunch of different platforms and the sanity tests
run.  It works just fine -- what problems did you have compiling it?

As for "latest patches", there are boat-loads of patches running around
loose, most of them ill-conceived and poorly implemented; naturally,
they've not been incorporated into the official release.  (Of course,
there are a few gems that haven't been incorporated, either; separating
the wheat from the chaff is a difficult and time-consuming process and
we don't have a paid development staff, you know.)
