Swissprot (and uniprot) entries are parsed by the Bio::SeqIO::swiss 
parser which returns a Bio::Seq::RichSeqI object. Check out it's POD 
for some shortcut methods to get at specific annotation. 
$seq->get_dates() will return an array of dates as present in the 
entry; the date of last update will be the last element.
