I'm for with that. As for it being too specific, I believe that the new
validators can be made to depend on Joda Time as a compile dependency that
is not needed by anyone using Hibernate Validator unless he needs that

for Hibernate Validator 4.1 we are planning to add some new constraints. In
this context Hardy and I discussed whether it might be worth to add support
for the date/time types from the Joda Time API (
) for the @Past/@Future standard
I think Joda is quite popular these days, and the upcoming JSR 310 is
heavily influenced by Joda, too (the spec lead is also the lead of Joda).
this might add value for users, OTOH such support might be too specific.
there any opinions on this?
