    Not sure that makes sense to me. If your application can depend on opensource Perl and opensource Archive::Zip, why can't it depend on opensource zip and just system("zip") with appropriate args from Perl?

    I certainly prefer to write Perl instead of execs where possible for performance/reliabilty reasons, but in this case Archive::Zip definitely is not as functional or elegant for doing exactly what you're trying to do here.

[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.
