# Support for older style ratetables: if the type attribute for the dimension
#  is 3 or 4 (a date) and the associated cutpoint is a vector of integers,
#  then the date has a baseline of 1/1/1960.  (Ratetables predate the
#  Date class).
# The newer and simpler form uses a Date vector for the cutpoints.
