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....
