How does this sentence belong in the package description? If there is
a lot of software out there which is generating RFC822 dates (with
two-digit years or idiosyncratic timezones) it has been a while since
it has come to my attention.

Is this worth a package of its own? It's not as if generating RFC2822
dates in perl is hard - there are twoliners easily googleable.
