very true.  however, it'd still be ugly and hard to read in the code,  
and i don't mind us optimizing for the developers, too (see dries's  
comments about making/keeping drupal easy to develop for).

also, if we had a better admin interface, then we could just leave it  
called "date.module" and let something else worry about grouping it  
with all the other field-type modules. ;)  however, we don't have  
this new installer/admin interface yet.  however, we do have the  
potential namespace conflict already (and the problem of CCK modules  
not being grouped in any sane way).

again, not exactly "relevant to core", but this list isn't *just*  
about core, either. ;)
