I guess the most likely one would be me, but not really. My perl-fu is
well below this level, so I will happily +1 whatever you more
experienced perl guys say :-) I don't see a big problem with a couple
of more files - it's not like we're going to support 20 different
versions of VS anyway, once we get to 4 i'm sure the earliest one is
well out of support already and can be removed. But in summary I'd
vote for whatever matches the "general perl pest practices" at this
