This is still more error prone than one would like and I expect anyone
capable of getting all the little things right to not have a problem
with bootstrapping local::lib themselves (I'd do it via cpanm, but there

polluting main Cygwin files: the modules distributed with Cygwin install
under perl_vendor, the modules installed by cpan will end up in
