in thread ultimate date check regexp

It seems a little counterproductive to call Date::Calc::check_date almost 75,000 times in order to create that regular expression. Unless you're planning to process more than 75,000 records then it would be more efficient to just call Date::Calc::check_date once for each date you want to check.
