Notwithstanding Samuel's offer to take over maintenance of Time-Piece, I 
would like to ask:  Is there a compelling reason why this is distributed 
with core?

ack 'use Time::Piece' . |less
Porting/ Time::Piece;
cpan/perlfaq/lib/perlfaq4.pod:438:    use Time::Piece;
cpan/perlfaq/lib/perlfaq4.pod:478:    use Time::Piece;
cpan/perlfaq/lib/perlfaq4.pod:577:    use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/    use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/t/03compare.t:3:use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/t/05overload.t:4:use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/t/04mjd.t:4:use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/    use Time::Piece;
cpan/Time-Piece/    use Time::Piece ':override';

So Time::Piece (and, for that matter, Time::Seconds) is used in 
Porting/  And it's mentioned in perlfaq4.  But if 
this distribution were not already in 'cpan/', would we be considering 
it for distribution with Perl 5 core?

Thank you very much.
