Yes, naturally. Tom Christiansen wrote the utilities and brian d foy packaged them and uploaded the distribution to CPAN. As you said, there are Windows-thwarting Unixisms in both the code and the distribution. I'm missing your point here.

One obvious gripe, even after "successfully" installing Unicode::Tussle on Windows using cpan:  built-in paging of the standard output stream, which causes this problem on Windows…
