DateTime objects are huge.

There's this trade-off between cacheing up the presentation of dates, 
and their compactness for storage.

In general in Zope, you want rendering speed and you don't care about 
the storage space. However, if you have a lot of dates, but you're only 
looking at a few of them at once, you'll want to optimise it the other 
way around.
