  support for the xs:dateTimeStamp type

Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor:

Bug description:
  I bumped into the following issue while trying to run the following XQuery 
3.0 test:

  Zorba returned:
  static error [err:XPST0017]: "xs:dateTimeStamp": function with arity 1 not 

  Looking into the latest F&O Spec for XQuery 3.0 I see that a new type,
  xs:dateTimeStamp was added for the implementations that "support XSD

  I have a few questions:
  1) should Zorba support the new type, xs:dateTimeStamp?
  If so, some function signatures need to be changed, for instance:
  Now, in Zorba, 
  fn:current-dateTime() returns a xs:dateTime
  instead of a xs:dateTimeStamp as stated in the 

  2) Should Zorba support constructor functions for xsd types ? Meaning should 
we add functions like:
  fn:unsignedInt($arg as xs:anyAtomicType?) as xs:unsignedInt?

  3) There are 2 tests in Zorba( xquery_1_0 and xquery_1_1) that check if all 
the functions from the fn: namespace of the F&O spec 1.0 and 3.0 are 
implemented in Zorba.
  The problem with these tests is that they only check the function names and 
their corresponding arities; they do not check if the types of the parameters 
are correct.
  This is the reason why the change in the signature of the 
fn:current-dateTime() that should now return a xs:dateTimeStamp was not picked 
up by these tests.

  IMO we should update these 2 tests to also check the parameter types:
  one problem I see here is that the introspection module only provides
  function to get the function name and arity, not the types of the

  Thanks for the help,
