I don't like the redundancy here. dayOfWeek and weekOfYear can (and should)
be derived from the dayOfMonth+monthOfYear+year. Having to specify them in
addition to the other fields is a major PITA, and one of the reasons the
current CalendarTime library is so unsavoury (why do I need to say what day
of the week it is? pah).
