Finance::YahooQuote 0.23

Rule number one in regression testing is to not depend on volatile data.
Which I seem to have violated in file t/02simple.t in the Perl
package Finance::YahooQuote.

Which lead the automated Perl test scripts to remind me for a few days now
that the full company name for symbol IBM no longer corresponded to what I had
encoded. Not really a bug, but a failure in tests anyway.

So without
further ado: a new version 0.23 of
which addressed this issue
is now in the Debian queue and on
CPAN and my local
yahooquote page.
