I'd be inclined to agree. The changes in Date::Manip's timezone handling
appear to be intentional API changes by upstream. It may be that they break
other packages (they also broke xmltv, one of my packages), but the fix for
this is to update the consumers to cope with the new version of Date::Manip.
I don't think there's really a bug in Date::Manip.
