I also don't like implicit normalisation to seconds underneath the hood when I'm doing basic date calculations, and the way that the "DateTime" base class is inherantly based on the Gregorian calendar.
I concur in this view. From a typing point of view there should be some common base type that can handle cross-calender arithmetic but as long as one stays in a homogenous subtype like Gregorian in a particular time zone no generalization code should fire up. -- TSa (Thomas Sandla▀)
