0.43.05 < 0.50 < 0.4305 < 0.4400 < 0.4500 < 0.5000

This means you can't change the version number from 0.xxyy to 0.xx.yy
without using Epoch (or Serial) and the result will probably be
incompatible with someone else's (eg. RH's) version numbering.

Anyway, there is already perl-DateTime in Fedora but it appears to be a 
completely different Perl package. :P
