  Try to quash errors under Cygwin using DateTime. The problem is that

    if needed.

  Protect against Date::Manip calling chdir()
    Under FreeBSD, under at least some circumstances, Date::Manip calls
    chdir() when determining the default time zone. In order to protect
    against this we save and restore the working directory around module
    loads (which is overkill) and around time zone setting (since setting
    the zone to '' triggers this behavior). Yes, this is a kluge.

  Require Astro::Coord::ECI (etc) 0.063.
  Drop default template documentation, which was only intended for
    informational purposes. Instead, we document how to extract the
    default templates.
  Add support for magnitudes. This involves:
    * Add a pass_variant attribute so we can ask for the brightest
      moment in the pass.
    * Add a -brightest option to pass() to override pass_variant, so
      that the interface is at least semi-consistent.
    * Modify the value formatter's magnitude() formatter so that, if
      there is no {magnitude} key in the thing being formatted, but
      there is a magnitude() method on the body, that method is called
      and the result formatted.
    * Modify the template for pass() to check to see whether
      PASS_VARIANT_BRIGHTEST is set, and if so add a magnitude column to
      the report.
    The last point above required a number of supporting changes:
    - Add a want_pass_variant() convenience method to return true if the
      specific variant is wanted.
    - Pass the Astro::App::Satpass object as the sp variable to Template
      Toolkit from the pass() method (and other non- formatter()
      methods) so that the template can see if the brightest moment is
      being requested.
    - use [% UNLESS data %] instead of [% DEFAULT data = ... %] in all
      templates, since it appears that the latter evaluates the
      right-hand side of the expression even if it does not use the
      value. This essentially causes each template to do a default
      calculation (with possible errors) whose result is thrown away.
  Permit initialization with special files. The idea is to allow /dev/null.
  Document the pass_threshold attribute, which was introduced in version
    0.000_38 (2012-01-19!) but somehow not documented then.
  Use of the Astro::App::Satpass2 'lit' attribute now produces an error.

  Make load_package() optionally callable as a method so it can use the

  Add options to the load_package() calling sequence: lib (which

    module). A true value of 'fatal' causes the failure not to be cached
    so that another load of the module will produce the same failure.
  Made $satpass2->time_parser( base => ... ) both parse an input time

  Made time parsing conform to the documentation in that if the time was
    defaulted, the default sets the base time for the parser.
  Implement Astro::App::Satpass2 method sky( lookup => ... ) in terms of

  Correct problem with configuring (and dumping the configuration of)
    the time parser. The formatter object was being accessed instead.
    This has apparantly been present since pretty much the beginning.
  Make the time_parser class of record
    Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime::Date::Manip rather than ::v5 or
    ::v6, since we have no control over the environment variables in
    effect when we are launched, and thus, if Date::Manip 6 is
    installed, which back end is in use.
  Redo Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime::Date::Manip logic so that if
    Date::Manip 6 is initialized in DM5 mode calls to it get routed
    through Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime::Date::Manip::v5. This was

  Add options -exclude and -status to Astro::App::Satpass2 spacetrack()
    method, so they get passed through to the Astro::SpaceTrack object.

  Correct t/whole_app.t to use File::HomeDir->my_home() rather than
    getpwuid in the tilde expansion tests.

  Have Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime::ISO8601->tz() regard an invalid
    time zone as a warning rather than an error, and equivalent to the
    system's local time zone (i.e. $ENV{TZ} = undef).
  Make expansion of parameters re-tokenize more like Bash.
  Correct t/tokenize.t to use File::HomeDir->my_home() rather than
    getpwuid in the tilde expansion tests.
  Have Astro::App::Satpass2::Warner ignore the Astro::App::Satpass2
    modules when carping or croaking.
  Override the system's $ENV{TZ} in t/format.t, since the tests
    explicitly require this to be undefined.
  Have t/basic.t display $ENV{TZ} for future reference.
  Correct Astro::App::Satpass2 optional module documentation to reflect
    the current state of the code.
