I'm with you up to the last one...shouldn't 'sun-1' refer to the last
*sunday* of a month? Otherwise I'm unsure as to the logic of having 'wed1'
refer to the first wednesday, but 'sun-1' refer to the last
wednesday...maybe I'm missing something?
Of course, it's entirely possible this is just a typo, in which case, all is
right with the world ;)
