True. And this fact has been one factor in keeping this function out of the
library before. Still, if it is well documented I'm starting to think the
risk might be worth it since 'month' becomes a first class object that can be
used in interfaces and as a data member in classes.

You are aware that this won't be for a couple months (at least), right?
