Well, I presume that the date and time arithmetic got there because
someone needed it badly enough to write it.  _Especially_ since this
could be an add on component, it looks to me like an ideal candidate
for pgfoundry.  Now all it needs is an author.  ;-)  But you're right
that, if you're scratching an itch, there's at least a chance that
someone else has it.
