Subject: Re: [Caml-list] date manipulation library
If you are going to implement a Date-library from scratch, please steal 
the interface. Either you make a ripoff of Microsoft or Java. The 
advantages are obvious:

1. You do not have to document the interface
2. You do not waste time reimplementing the wheel
3. Fewer bugs
4. The library will be complete from start
5. Porting applications to/from Ocaml gets easier

The source for Java's implementation can be found at
