Oh... I see what's happening there. The 'Date' as used above is
actually a function which returns an instance of a DateTimeType, and
not a class, as you might expect. DateTime is another such function.
The output from 'd', which is obviously module-generated, is returning
a misleading value.
Jeff... was the output you got from your code REALLY the output you saw?
