Eric Fifer (new father, which explains his infrequent participation on
the list).   In any case, the current perl is based on
"perl-5.6.1-TRIAL1" -- e.g. the cygwin perl is based on what
perl5-porters THEMSELVES consider an experimental release.  So, IMO the
test designation should not be removed unless Eric syncs up with
"perl-5.6.1 (official)".  (And I think perl-5.6.2 official has been
released, anyway...)

AFAIK, the holdup is that Eric is trying to work out the nasty
text/binary issues that reappeared in 5.6.1-TRIAL1-cygwin.
