After some discussion I made a number of drastic revisions to S32-setting-library/Temporal.pod

What I want to see in Perl 6 is a set of very minimal roles that can be used to provide a simply object from gmtime() and localtime(). These objects should not handle locales, proper Olson timezones, string parsing, user-defined formatting, or math.

They're basically simply little data blobs with some overloading and a few handy methods.

I imagine that a real classes which do math, handle leap seconds, formatting, and so on will _also_ do these roles, but this should be done out of core.

I don't really know Perl 6 all that well, so I'd welcome review, in particular of my Perl 6-isms, and also just of the general concepts.
