It sure makes it a lot easier to write cross platform perl, whatever the 
origin. I've never used ActiveState perl on any platform other than 
Win32, do the other ActiveState packages behave the same? I always 
presumed it was a conscious concession to cross-platform portability. I 
am ashamed to admit I do not remember whether the predecessor package 
(prior to being benevolently inhaled by ActiveState) had the same behavior.
