I'm not so sure.  Come to think of it, setting PERL5OPT is also
somewhat evil (I'm never really comfortable with global effects).

A cleaner way might be to add an option to pl2bat (and whatever
installer code that sets up file associations etc) that will add
the -MWild or equivalent.

Yet another way is to supply a gperl.bat or similar perl.exe
