It should be fine, assuming a new CPAN libwin32 and standalone Win32
get released before 5.8.9.  If it were a non-core module that the
"not be able to use" applied to, I can see reason to keep it out of
maint, but the core Win32 *is* 0.27, and there's no reason the core
should need to work with an older Win32.  The installing-libwin32-
downgrading-Win32 thing is just an artifact of the planned changes
not being quite complete.

Does this make sense?
