Bug#574317: no upstream response.. potential RM candidate?

There's not been any response on the upstream bug report since March.
Furthermore, there's been no upload of the package since 2004, so it looks
like the module is potentially abandoned upstream.

The only reverse-dependency of this module is libdatetimex-easy-perl, and it
seems like it's not a requirement, in fact it's described in the POD as a
"last resort", and is used in such a way that DateTimeX::Easy will function
without it (wrapped in an eval/require block).

Seems to me like we could remove this package and drop it from
libdatetimex-easy-perl's dependencies quite easily.
