Yep, sure is.

Nods I did look at the YUI version. My primary reason for not using it 
was that YUI calendar is quite large, 250KB compressed, while 
JSCalendar is 40KB. For an intranet app this won't matter much but on 
the web it could be a factor.

As you probably know the JSCalendar is still alive and well but as a 
separate project:

We could add the JSCalendar project as a dependency to the build 
script and have it downloaded. We do the same for Hibernate which is 
LGPL as well. I think Will raised the issue that we just need to 
provide an option to easily switch off LGPL dependencies. The has such an option :)

+1 strong typing is good idea.
