<x-flowed>After perusing the rather long documentation, mxDateTime seems to have 
a number of components I'm looking for (and then some).  It 
successfully built out-of-the-box on OS X and looks like it works.  As 
I integrate it into my processes, I'll notify the list if I encounter 
any problem issues.

Thanks,
Tom
