Subject: DateInfo/TimeInfo/DateParam/TimeParam/Date/Time


Section "6.9 Date and Time Functions" has a

| TODO: Should we create a new pseudotype DateInfo and TimeInfo, which can
| either be the date/time serial number OR a string that is automatically
| converted

I think that's a leftover and superfluous now that we have and use
DateParam and TimeParam, am I right?

Same for

| TODO: Should some of these return a subtype (Date, Time)?

that are already used in return values. However, are they used
everywhere where applyable or do we have to check things over?


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
