--- Comment #4 from muninn.proj...@gmail.com ---
Looking at
https://github.com/JaimeLynSchatz/stc/blob/master/Dateslider/js/dateslider.js
there still seems to be some parsing using the Date object from the year /
month / day integers. Javascript date has some issues [2] some of which have
been fixed by jobatime [1].

An interesting question is how far we want to go with detail while keeping
things sane. I'm tempted to have the slide work in two ways: basic modern date
with a calendar (>1900) and year only to handle everything that is earlier. 

This would avoid having to deal with the corner cases created by the tweaking
of the gregorian calendar over the years.
