Perl 5.8.8 requires to use
Perl 5.10.0 requires to use should reflect that as ActiveState specifies that PPMs are not compatible between 5.8.8 and 5.10.0, so installing the wrong repository will probably generate a lot of trouble.

Yes, this is a blocker. While we're at it, we should fix the way the instructions are presented based on your build of 5.8. (Different builds have different PPM versions).

Tested with Bugzilla 3.1.3+ on Windows 2000 SP4 with both Perl 5.8.8 build 822 and Perl 5.10.0 build 1002.

Looks good to me, code-wise. I'd like ActiveState and ID to be all lowercase in that function name, though.
