actually, in the name of accuracy, it is highly desirable... being able to 
determine if a date range spans one or more leap years is important... too bad 
there's not a set routine for when leap seconds are added... things like this 
really rattle the cages of those of us with OCD where accuracy in values is 
highly desirable ;)

situations :(  gonna finish eating and reading emails and then maybe go digging 
again O:)
