What's wrong with porting DateTime?


It's back to the old question of "what's in core?" Are dates and times something that are used in such a large proportion of programs that they deserve to be shipped in the basic grammar? Or perhaps in the basic set of packages?

Perl 5 has an entire swath of modules designed to manipulate dates and times; this suggests that they are (A) commonly used and (B) something that people feel very strongly about the semantics of.
