since we are doing the date type stuff now properly.

how about we consider moving to actual in-database date fields  
instead of using timestamps.

i quite like being able to use the database for my date handling.  
Truth be told, that is before
I started using strtotime (which is by far the most useful function  
in php's date handling lib),
and was dissillusioned at how horrible mysql's date handling is  
compared to postgres.
