Now if we could overload (I believe this is the correct term) the 3rd
parameter, I could either pass a numeric day (or month or year) or
I could pass a special value. For example:

For the first day of the month    SetDate(datefield:*d:1)
For the last day of the month    SetDate(datefield:*m:*last)
For the last day of the quarter  SetDate(datefield:*q:*last)
For the first day of the quarter  SetDate(datefield:*q:*first)

I would be able to use Operational Descriptors to see if I passed
a character string or an integer.
