Matt,

My only concern when reading about the bench you are constructing
is its complexity.  It would be great if your final codebase
to test were very streamlined algorithmically.  Calendars
can be ugly logical beasts, especially with a grid layout, 
and a complex bench might thwarte the commmon folk 
from trying it.

Otherwise, sounds great !
