Howdy, Australian Perlmongers.  After poking around on CPAN, I realised
that there were no modules to validate Australian phone numbers.  So now
there is!

Introducing Number::Phone::AU:

Keep in mind that this doesn't validate all Australian phone numbers;
that would be insanity[1].

What it /does/ do is check to see if the number looks generally like a
valid Australian phone number.  This is to sanitise user-entered contact
numbers, which I'm guessing is the largest use-case.

It's probably rife with bugs.  Patches are, of course, welcome :)


PS. I'm not on the mailing list for any other Australian Perlmonger
groups, so feel free to forward this around if you are.
