Let us not forget the teachings of http://www.wall.org/~larry/: "Perl isn't an orthogonal language; it's a diagonal language. By which we mean that Perl doesn't force you to always go at right angles." (Camel, sect 1.5 -- I found this via google (where it shouldn't be, so no link) not by inspection, so I'm not sure which ed.)

    [stevieb]: ...you're testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there...
    [stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
    [shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
    [stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
    [shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
    [shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
    [stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
    [stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
    [shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
