In which I finally figure out dates and timestamps in FHIR

The key is in the last sentence of my last post (half the reason I do these things is to think out loud).  Two DIFFERENT things.  A timestamp is a date and a timestamp.  A date is just a date.  When you compare a date to a timestamp, you are comparing ONLY the date aspect.  When comparing times, you are getting into the timestamp aspect.

User expectations met, problem resolved.  I may have to think about saving the date only representation of a timestamp for efficiency reasons.
