Subject Possible improvement: TrieDate without time of day
Date Sat, 15 Dec 2012 15:36:31 GMT
I have seen a few inquiries concerned with the overhead of storing time of day for simple dates.
The concerns are both storage and performance. So, the question/proposal is whether a variant
of TrieDate with no time of day component, call it TrieDay or TrieDateTimeless or TrieDateNoTime
(or incompatibly rename TrieDate to TrieDateTime and use TrieDate for the new format), could
be stored with, say, 40% more storage efficiency and maybe a comparable or at least significant
performance improvement for queries.

Thoughts?
