I haven't seen anyone raise this issue so I will. Is it really
necessary to depend on mx.DateTime, couldn't you make do with the
datetime module? I know that there are more functionallity available
in mx.DateTime, but it's allways nice to stick with the standard
library and avoid a dependency on yet-another-library.
Just a thought....
