    A simple module for converting dates from Gregorian to Discordian.


    This is a very simple module which allows for conversion from
    normal dates (via 'time.time', 'time.localtime', etc.) to
    Discordian dates (a silly made-up dating system that divides a
    year into five seasons of 73 days each).  The module can either be
    used as a standalone command line application (which prints the
    current date in Discordian form) or as a extension module.
