Hence my comment about TDateTime and Currency that are not supposed to
have been simple types. :-) They are so flawed in design it's just
scary.  Try and do multi-currency calculations with a Currency type.
Try and calculate the difference between dates or like you pointed
out, setting it to a true null value. Thank goodness for Value Object
design pattern. ;-)
