berrybrew, the Perlbrew for Windows v1.15 releasedby stevieb (Abbot)

I've released berrybrew version 1.15.
All of the credit for this update goes to pryrt who went far above and beyond with this PR. It's a pleasure to have him contributing to this (or any) project.
The significant change here is the addition of the use command. I feel that this addition adds tremendous value to the software, and makes it much easier to use.
This allows you to temporarily switch to one of your other installed Perl instances either in the same command window or new ones without switching your currently switched to one. Here are some examples:
Temporarily use a different installed version, in the same window. Typing exit will return you to your previous environment within the same window:
Calling exit returns you to your previous environment within the same CLI window.
You can also use multiple versions within the same window. Using this method will cascade the instances:
Let's actually pop up a couple of new windows instead of using the one you're currently using:
I can't exactly show you the output without a screenshot, but I'm sure you get the gist. You can continue working in your main window, but execute things in the other two who have the respective version of Perl loaded and ready to go.
pryrt, I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work you've put into this. I mean, not just the new feature, but cleaning up erroneous whitespace, completely enhancing the whole test framework, updating the docs and meticulously adding tests while fully and completely explaining everything clearly. Cheers!
