Imitating GNU Make -j...

strredwolf has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Has anyone tried to do a GNU make-like processor in Perl? I'm half-tempted to make one myself, using merlyn's techniques documented in Linux Magazine... however, I'd like to see if there's anyone else who's done it (or if there's a module that'll let me fork, passing an array of references, that'll do the multipronged make).

[stevieb]: use metamod::DateTime. Don't fsck around. Seriously. As someone who's done sensitive date/time stuff, don't roll your own. Use what is available and known stable. Do not guess.
[stevieb]: Date::Time even
[stevieb]: ffs I can't make DateTime link properly, so there.
