I will agree with you that you don't need the SQL preprocessor machinery
just to do some date calcs.
But if you already have it, then why not use it?
Tweakable? Might be useful if you discover that IBM has a bug, but if
they are truly falling outside of ISO specs then they should fix that
posthaste. But if your definition of tweakable is that you want to
combine the first Monday after the quarter into Tuesday and report them
both as day of week 2 then I suppose that may hold some water. (Granted,
if I saw that logic it might be hard for ME to hold water.)
On the bright side, you could show your management how much the purchase
of the SQL option would simplify code. That is one shining example.
