IIS shouldn't care.

As gitweb is obviously not working with activeperl I'm not sure what point
there is in continuing, unless you plan to submit a patch.

I'd find out where it's supported and use it there.

As -| forks, it would surprise me if it works on windows. There's a whole
Win32::Fork module just to simulate Unix forking on windows.
