RSS dates

[ #13167 ]

There seems to be a bit of banter at the moment about the virtues of ISO 8601 vs RFC 822 dates. It's just a matter of using suitable tools, in the RSS parser I wrote, I don't really care as Date::Parse supports both:

use Date::Parse;
my $time = str2time( $item{'dc:date'} || $item{'pubDate'} );
