In the note offering to fix it, I also listed numerous
other scripts with non-core dependencies.  Dan, in
IRC, indicated that they all should have tickets on
them.  Before fixing with one of the
following solutions:
1.  inline Config::IniFiles with the author's
2.  Use some other core module if possible
3.  Roll my own
4.  Revert back to previous non-module version

I want to find out what the general guidance is and
try to be inline with that - warnock still applies

The threading issue is resolved by upgrading
cygwin1.dll (see PLATFORMS).  The test output being
controlled using sleep statements instead of using
regexes is still unresolved.

"Gatacomb" ne "Gatcomb".  That is what my drill
sergeant in the Army used to call me though ;-)  There
are plenty of Cygwin issues but I have swatted
everyone I have discovered so far.  That being said -
I am going to be giving mingw a go and leaving Cygwin
alone for a while.
