Time::Piece 0.13 released

[ #35819 ]

Some of you may know that Time::Piece became part of perl 5.10. Anyone one of the things discovered was that I accidentally dropped a BSD copyright off one of the XS functions. This is now added back in. I also added an add_months() and add_years() set of functions, to make date arithmetic a bit easier.

This was interesting seeing what happens with the edge-case dates. It seems that when you do 31st March + 1 month you end up with 1st May. This mirrors what other date libraries appear to do. I documented the gotcha.

Enjoy.
