Sorry, I am new to Python, but I have a requirement for date
manipulation in an app that will need to run in 2.2, so I am
interested in the data functions of the latest release as well.  When
you say that it was a C module, are you saying the library of date
functions in the latest version are written in C?  Does this somehow
stop us from back-porting it to 2.2 or 2.1 python?  I would be very
interested in seeing the C source code for the date routines, along
with the routine descriptions - where can I find that?
