I would like to propose adding new model to handle approximate dates (by approximate date I mean date without year, month and/or day specified). I think working with these dates is quite common problem. I'm simply using additional boolean fields to indicate which argument is missing, but I don't consider it as an elegant solution. There is also custom model available at https://github.com/dracos/django-date-extensions but I haven't tested it and it hasn't seen any work in a while.
Please consider adding this feature. Thank you.
