Sorry for not jumping into this thread earlier.  The DateUtils is my 
submission, so I should probably explain parseCVS...

It does NOT parse any dates from CVS, so it isn't related to ant or any 
other tool.  From using CVS, you can checkout code as of "yesterday", "a 
week ago", or "last Thursday."  CVS parses this human date expression 
and calculates that date for you.  That is the behavior I was trying to 
emulate... support a more human readable date parser.  It's not a great 
name, but CVS was the language parsing rule I was based on.

I've got no special urge to keep it in lang, if others do not want.
