I've been planning a rewrite of GnomeDateEdit for a while.  I've been
driven crazy by it's limitations.  The big feature I want is the ability
to have 'unknown' fields.  For example, I'd like to be able to just
specify 'January, 1932, or even just '1488'.

I don't know what Owen thinks about accepting this for inclusion in
GTK+, but I'd love to see it.  Additionally, there's a new Combo widget
slated for landing in libegg.  We may want to look into using that as a
basis for writing it.
