Thank you Thomas.

I feel your pain, when, as a developer, you face two end users with mutually
exclusive requests. I am grateful for your long term contributions to this

The +/- keys cover perfectly the second need I was describing. Thanks a lot.
Next time, I'll make sure to consult the kmymoney documentation first. Sorry
about that.

Back to the original request about the focus on the day section of the date

Personally, I am fortunate enough to be using Gentoo, so having managed to find
the appropriate commit (referred above), it was easy enough to produce a quick
and dirty patch and re-emerge (re-compile) the package, so that on my system
the focus is now back on the day section. But it helps only me and potentially
other Gentoo/kmymoney users.

The +/- key functionally render the feature request less important because
other users may form the habit of using the +/- keys instead of the arrows.

Having said that, I still prefer using the arrows, because when I key in my
transactions, my fingers are already placed there (due to selecting the payee a
couple of fields earlier), so I will keep my patch in place. Besides, I can't
really think of a use case where focus on the year section in the widget might
be more useful in a day to day use of kmymoney... It really appears to me more
logical to have the default focus placed on the day, regardless of the date
format used, as it used to be.
