Win32 launcher: embed Perl
|Reported by:||dolmen||Owned by:||azawawi|

The current launcher runs WPerl.exe with the 'padre' script as an argument. This launcher has the current flaws:
- the Padre process is "wperl.exe" in the task list
- 2 processes are used to
Merging WPerl.exe in Padre.exe would fix those flaws. This is done by embedding Perl.
The launcher source is linked to the perl interpreter, so for maximum compatibility with the perl used on the user platform, the padre.exe would be compiled at install time. The old launcher would be still distributed in binary form as a fallback if build fails.
For ActivePerl?, distribution would be as PPM, so pre-built.
I'm working on this feature.
