Given that the Perl people seem intent on building a separate little
module for each bit of API functionality (Java by contrast builds a
couple of thousand of these into its standard runtime "rt.jar"; will
there be literally thousands of Perl modules?), we may need to have to
find a different way of organizing the ports tree, or "p5-*" is going
to seriously overwhelm the rest of the packages. Maybe we should think
about putting perl-objects into a subdirectory? Plus, won't they start
being "p6-" some month soon?
No offence to Nikolay, who is doing a great job committing all kinds of

Initial import of Date-Simple 3.00
This module may be used to create simple date objects. It
only handles dates within the range of Unix time. It will
only allow the creation of objects for valid dates.
Attempting to create an invalid date will return undef.
