Saving up to 24K of memory (and usually less) when loading all of Test::Harness, Test::More, CPAN, CPAN::Meta, ExtUtils::MakeMaker and Pod::Perldoc *and* their dependents doesn't seem worth the changes downstream code may need to make.

bulk88 provided a Devel::Profit patch*, but what else does it break?


* which the maintainer can't use as is, since it breaks the code on non-Win32
