In the "R" language, Hadley Wickham is a superstar.  (personal, git)

 

One of his packages is "lubridate".  It has a stack of very useful time/date handling utilities.  They are most useful for "speaking human" or in average-person-facing user interfaces.

 

You should look at the utility here.  Things like elapsed time in days, or holiday handling built-in.  That might be useful to have in a clean and native package.
