msys-perl-wrapper was used to transform windows paths after the -I flag,
which was a preprocessor flag, which a) doesn't exist anymore and b) the
preprocessor has not even be in perl for years.

Could this be the cause for Bug 1247282? Starting with the 2016-02-10 nightly builds the comm-central Windows builds report an error when invoking perl scripts.
Yes, it is, but I'm not thrilled to back out just for comm-central.
Depends on: 1247282

No longer depends on: 1247282
Just in case you didn't read it in the other bugs, no problem in not backing this out. We've temporarily added the msys-perl-wrapper in comm-central and I will soon rewrite those scripts in python.
