I have managed to compile the release of my project with date_time without
linking to the release date_time library. The same project needed to be
linked to the debug library when compiling as debug (MVS7). Strange.

My comment on warnings would be that preferably libraries should not
generate any warnings if possible simply so that developers can take note of
their own warnings when they generate them. However I appreciate the effort
involved in this library so I should not be too picky.
