in reply to 2038 bug

I'd do something like:

# FIXME - time() will break in 2038 # ... your code ...

The only group Perl project that I've ever worked on decided to use FIXME with an explanation for known broken code. It made it simple to do an update from CVS, then run a "grep FIXME" on the source.
