The warnings are be fixed now.
There's been a new release of DateTime::Format::Builder with my patch
- so that's great.
I'll bump our Makefile.PL prereqs to require it.

I'm still tracking down a final leak(s).
I'm still seeing a small increase in memory use under Catalyst - but
it's something that Devel::Cycle isn't picking up.

I'm also going to see what optimisations I can make regarding general
memory footprint - there's several avenues I've started looking down -
hopefully I'll get something out this week.
