DateTime would be a good candidate.
At the moment I don't have much to show you what I have in mind - so I
will be in touch again when I have done some work (hopefully soon).
I'm a bit of a code quality neurotic, and I like to be able to refactor
with peace of mind - so I like full test coverage (TDD is the best way
to achieve this of course). To start with I'd prefer contributions from
All the best,
