I think the real question is where do we go from here.  Ashutosh has
proposed a patch up-thread based on a suggestion from Andrew, but it
is not clear if we want to go there as that seems to be bypassing
handshake mechanism.  The other tests and analysis seem to indicate
that the new version Perl binaries on Windows are getting built with
flags that are incompatible with what we use for plperl and it is not
clear why perl is using those flags.  Do you think we can do something
at our end to make it work or someone should check with Perl community
about it?
