You might take a look at Date::Manip which can parse dates in arbitary
deltas, sing, dance...
However, I don't know how far the "arbitaray allowance" will stretch.
May well gag it. Probably still worth checking. It's the biggest (and
arguably the most versatile of the Date modules though. Date::Calc is
also very big
and capable too.
