Does the character set spontaneously change twice a year? No, thus Gambas
strings *are* useful.
Not sure about the date datatype, but maybe it is good enough for most
people. However, I think the situation could be improved.
Read what Tobias wrote. He gets the problem and his solution is good (new
datatype for calendar dates).

You are arguing with me. I know how they work and I'm trying to tell you
about the limitations of the design. Instead of listening you claim I don't
understand how they work.
Your argument against timezoneless date is that they are not usable when
sent over the internet, which is not a valid argument as explained already.
