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.
