well my 2 pence ( do we have a CCur for your local currency :---?

first and foremost if Gambas has done something a set way since 1.0 then 
it should stay as is for backward compatibility.
With the exception of if optional arguments could be added to add extra 
functionality without destabilising existing code use of old mechanism.

Having said that I would have expected that CStr and CDate should 
convert to and from a string to a date without any time zone conversion 
at all.

If a time zone affected date time representation is required that should 
have been a separate function with a more implicit name making clear it 
is TZ affected representation.
Or as an optional argument to the original functions.
