in reply to berrybrew, the Perlbrew for Windows v1.15 released

You're welcome. I'm glad my ideas and contributions were useful to someone else (I knew they were useful to me: I really wanted the use functionality. I just wasn't sure anyone else would.) Thanks for all your efforts on maintaining and improving berrybrew.

    As I've said before, I rarely use Windows for anything (outside of work), but quite some time ago, I built Test::BrewBuild so I could automate my own CI for my own distributions across both Unix and Windows seamlessly, and I took over berrybrew so that I could do exactly what you have been doing; adding the pieces I needed it to do so I could dispatch over the network unit test runs to it.

    Already, I am finding your feature exceptionally handy, and it'll make it easier for me to work on my projects on Windows going forward if I choose/need. Create a command alias for new, and I spawn a new window with the currently running Perl so that I can kick off something in the main window immediately after spawning a new environment that's exactly the same so I can do something else in it.

    I also like kicking off new windows for separate versions as I can run the same command in all of them, and visually see what's happening in parallel without having to run commands sequentially in the same window after using switch, which of course forces window closure/reopen.
