I just installed ActiveState 5.10 1004 on my local XP vm, along with Swish-e
2.4.5. Looks like the Swish-e SWISH::API perl module was built against
ActiveState 5.8 and so is not binary compatible with ActiveState 5.10.

You can (a) install ActiveState 5.8 (I still run 5.8.x in production) or (b)
figure out how to build SWISH::API using ActiveState 5.10.

(a) is definitely easier.
