In the context of KOrganizer we also discussed introducing a replacement class 
for QDateTime for better handling of timezones (basic idea: add a property 
for specifying which timezone the time is in). I assume your ExtDateTime 
doesn't address timezones at all. If we introduce a KDateTime for KDE4 would 
it make sense to address both problems with the same class or are there any 
drawbacks which would speak against using ExtDateTime for our purpose?
