But it seems to me that I need to write "gregorian::date" instead of
just "date" or perhaps "date<long>".
I expect that I should be able to do write something like
cin >> set_calendar(gregorian) >> d;
cout << set_calendar(french_revolutionary) << d;
The date, d, contains a value representing a day that has many
names according to different calendar systems. The name only matters
for input and output.
