Hello Juan

well, the idea behind me was to do something that anybody can use actually.....if I 
crack the DateTime module for a quick and dirty, then nobody will benefit from it, and 
I will have to take care of it in future releases. I was however thinking on two 
possible solutions:

- creating a DateTime class preserving the actual interface while wrapping around 
- pathing the actual one.

I will study mxDateTime and think about it.

Somebody would like to help me, by the way?
