I noticed the situations when John asked about this last week at and I started to email you,
but then got distracted.  I'm glad someone ended up getting in
touch with you.

You should be able to just remove the win32/ext/Win32/ files and include
the win32/ext/Win32 files from maint and change MANIFEST accordingly.
Pedantically, it would also be nice to use the Configure patch in

Win32API::File is still in libwin32, since even for MSWin32 builds
it won't move to the core till 5.8.9, correct?

Thanks for all your work on cygwin perl.
