Ah yes. This comes up frequently. Many a Git for Windows user pointed me
into that direction.

The biggest problem with Strawberry Perl is that it is virtually
impossible to build the Subversion-Perl bindings using the Git for Windows
SDK when using Strawberry Perl.

Which pretty much precludes it from being used in Git for Windows.

And then there are the path issues... Git's Perl scripts are pretty
certain that they live in a POSIX-y environment. Which MSYS2 Perl
provides. Strawberry Perl not.
