Let's look at this block of code.

While this is all true, that's not what the block of code is trying to do.
Patron's should have an expiry date for their account. The problem is not the
lack of category code, the problem is the lack of expiry date. This code is
trying to correct the expiry date based on the category code. However, given
that we don't know what the category code is, the program shouldn't even be
trying to set the dateexpiry at all. So, in the case that there is no category
found, which is also possible by passing a BAD one, we should not set the
dateexpiry. In short, set the dateexpiry to the function call *IF* there is a
patron_category. Hence, my counter patch. Feel free to sign off on it and
obsolete yours, Andreas, if you think it is better.

I don't think fixing all the templates to pass category code is the correct way
to handle the problem.
