We're going to have to reject this. Some gems used Date back in the day. We switched to Time and got a 30% speed boost out of it, but since some specs out there still have Date, applying this patch would raise exceptions whenever they were loaded.

I don't understand. How an empty Date class would be useful for those gems?

I switched to require 'date' in @f65ea70 as I no longer see a reason to avoid loading Date for real.
