new Date() JSR

It looks like we will finally get a decent API for working with dates and times in Java. After the debacles with Date (1900-based years anyone?) and Calendar (just how complex can an API be?), Joda has been a savior. Now, a new JSR has been registred that aims to start with Joda to create a new, java.time API. Hopefully, the leads can fight to keep this one as simple and logical as possible and fight the spec-by-committee plague.
