To be honest, what he REALLY wants is Chocolate Perl.
For a while now, it's been my intention that we have...
Vanilla Perl - Experimentation
Strawberry Perl - Perl people that don't know Windows.
Chocolate Perl - Windows people that don't know Perl
Having a viable Chocolate Perl is the big pay day, because with the cornucopia of CPAN behind it we are in a position to create a high profile scripting language for doing Windows sysadmin and utility programming that doesn't rely on Microsoft, that won't change unexpectedly, that doesn't cost anything, and that you can whip up a quick solution to your problem even with nothing but Notepad.
That would be exciting!
