one more reason to publish binaries for mswin: ZoneAlarm.
popfile, written in perl, forces the average user to allow all perl
programs to access the internet -- a gaping hole in your firewall. (I
consider this a defect in ZoneAlarm's design, but I don't think it is going
away anytime soon.)
 a sophisticated user could create a private copy of perl.exe
and call it popfile.exe
Or a sophisticated _installer_ program could make that copy (or symlink)
of perl.exe itself, name it popfile.exe, and all would be well.
