Math-Base36 (0.09) *****

I was about to do some work on improving my base 36 number reading routine when I had the idea to look on CPAN to see if there was any existing solution. I didn't expect to find anything but was surprised to find this. I'm using it to parse numbers created by JavaScript using "number.toString(36)" as a way of compressing message size. As far as I have used this, it works nicely, although my numbers only go from 0 to 36*36 - I haven't tested it beyond that.
