IMHO, the fact that dates are internaly represented by a number does
not make them a number. Detes are discrete (distinct) elements, I can't
see how could one take a average from that.

Lets say you have this set:
[A, B, A, A, C, B] ... then, what's the avg ??

That's the same with dates, what whould be the avg. for
[mar-08-01, jan-08-31, may-07-29] ??
