Just adding my view:
DateTime is the gorilla of the time modules. it contains everything.
Handles time zones and day light savings perfectly. The only problem is
that it is comparatively slow.
Date::Calc on the other hand, may give an incorrect answer if you start
playing with day light savings and time zones. However it is fast. For
simple dates calculation it is totally OK.

So choose what is important to you.
Shmuel.
