This seems to be an issue with every ISO8601 module I've seen: A bare year is a legal ISO8601 date but it's impossible to tell the difference after parsing between for example: 1900 and 1900-01-01 as the month and day always defaults to "1". This means once you have the $dt object, there is no way of knowing whether you were passed a bare year or the date <year>-01-01 and so you lose information.

I'm sorry for taking so long to get back to you. We've actually had some interesting debate about precision vs accuracy as it applies to date math in my office. Are you trying to do some sort of date comparision or do you really just want a lexer? -Josh --
