Would you similarly complain that you already have del and dir and not
want rm and ls?
Personally I dislike ActiveState Perl. Things like setsid just don't
work and signal handling is not reliable (that may be better). Plus
things written for ActiveState sometimes don't port easily to
Linux/Unix. This is not the case with Cygwin's Perl.
