    I don't think so, but they're both on CPAN.  Personally, I consider that
if it's on CPAN, it is *effectively* part of Perl, but I'm guessing others
feel differently.

    I found that the two of these made an unwieldy project wieldy, and
significantly reduced development time (esp. Time::Piece).

    :)
