We have started using pcfg_open_custom for feeding strings to the config
gears, which works quite nice.  But, the direct Perl variable -> config
mapping doesn't use pcfg_open_custom yet, and would require a considerable
amount of work to do so, including maintaining backwards compatibility w/
1.2.x.  In other words, the <Perl> stuff is currently stable, heaps of
people rely on it.  Only a few API_EXPORTs and magic, the feature is
available to win32 users and presumably just as stable as it is under unix.
<Perl> sections under win32 could hook into the windows registry and other
funky stuff.  Since some of these functions are clearly not part of the
"API", how about a


or something like that, which does the same as API_EXPORT, but doesn't
advertise itself as "public" to readers of the source code?
