after looking at the interface-specification above and checking the
current api of the date-functions i believe, it would make more sense to
only extend the current api with new functions of the same style.
2 versions come to my mind:

1.) extending GDate itself and adding new g_date_* function
2.) defining a new struct GDateTime and adding funtions
    g_dt_* with similar sytax as the g_date-functions

haven't looked deeply in that yet, but shouldn't be too difficult ;-)

if you want me to start with one of the 2 suggested versions above, just
tell me ;-)
