Module wishlist #1

This posting series relate to wishlist for existing modules. Some items are serious, some are not. I have not created a patch or submitted an RT ticket for the items, I'm posting them first to see other people's take on things.

1. Parallel cpanm. Last time I checked, there's a github issue on it. Ever had to install 200-300 modules on new servers? Without -n? Not for the terribly impatient. I suspect this is best implemented by a wrapper for cpanm.

2. DateTime->from_ymd(). It irks me that I have to write DateTime->new(year=>Y, month=>M, day=>D) everytime or (worse) having to use one of the DateTime::Format modules for this simple task.
