The underlying library does not support Windows:
http://www.ossp.org/pkg/lib/mm/

It was built by Ralf Engelschall to allow sharing between processes on
unix, for use in Apache HTTPD 1.x.  Since Windows uses threads
instead, it doesn't need this.  You should be able to use the perl
threads sharing mechanism to do the same thing.
