I don't think M::B is ready to go into maint.  I would like it go to
into blead "soon" after there is more field testing on CPAN.

That said, I see no reason (other than the work involved) why A cygwin
package of 5.12 couldn't include M::B from CPAN.  This is essentially
the Strawberry Perl approach -- it's a "vanilla" perl supplemented
with modules from CPAN that make things sane on Win32.
