Excuse me, but Time::Cubic is no joke.  It is a testament to the great
Gene Ray, and the message he has brought us from the year 2051.  If
you decide not to heed this message, and instead follow a queer jewish
god, then you are truly evil.

The Bantown Public License is Free, in every sense of the word.   If
you have a problem with freedom, then you are ignorant.  Indeed, you
are ignorant, educated stupid.  THINK.

If I must release my module under a dual GPL/BPL license in order for
it to be accepted to CPAN (as the module is currently used in many
various enterprise applications), then so I shall.

Also, your JAPH clearly marks you as being enslaved by Word.  A queer
jewish god.
