At present, DBCacheContrib fails completely and no topics can be edited if Time::parseDate is not installed. And yet, this plugin is required for only a small subset of DBCacheContribs features, and certainly not essential. So it would be nice if it were possible for DBCacheContrib to function at some level without this CPAN module, since it's very difficult to install that module under a windows (Indigo Perl) setup.

I'm not sure how this would be handled. Possibly provide an error message when the time-related functions are called?

We got rid of the immediate problem, but the fact is that if you want to use the contrib, you really have to have time::parsedate.
