Subject: Option to prefer future

Hi Tom, We're currently happily using DateTime-Format-Natural. It seems to handle most of the dates our users throw at it. As a fallback we offer Date-Manip. I'd prefer to offer your module as a fallback. One issue is that DateTime-Format-Flexible does not have optional prefer-future semantics. This is important - especially for our application - since todo lists are almost always about the future, not the past. For example, "Wednesday" has a different meaning depending on where in the week you are. We always want it to mean the next Wednesday, not the nearest one. Thanks! Shawn

This should be fixed in 0.10. Please let me know if there are any other test cases you need handled.
