It depends on the quality of implementation you want to deliver. With
a nice visual date picker, the UI for picking a month or a week is
probably quite different from the UI for picking a day, which in turn
would be different from the UI for picking a time, or a date and time
together. For instance, a day picker would probably only show you
month or possibly a 2 or 3 months at a time, whereas that would not
make sense for a month picker. Just having a type-in box with no
visual picker would result in a control that would likely not be
usable for the kinds of sites where you enter dates.
