I'm new to GitHub.

I just noticed that the interval function is giving some unexpected results...

interval('2015-03-01', '2016-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 19
interval('2015-03-02', '2016-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 19.47541
interval('2015-03-03', '2016-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 18.93333

I would expect the output of the middle function to be between the first and third.

If I change the end period to 2015 I get what I would expect...

interval('2015-03-01', '2015-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 7
interval('2015-03-02', '2015-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 6.966667
interval('2015-03-03', '2015-10-01') / months(1)
[1] 6.933333

Am I missing something?

It's probably a bug. Division by month is rather flimsy.
