Bring back categorize by date that was lost after 3.x

Idea created by amarsden on Feb 25, 2011
     I find it hard to believe this one.  But in Arcview 3.1 you could do a classification style based on date ranges - so all dates in one year = one colour, all dates in another year another colour.

    After all date fields are just fancy numeric fields.

    Yet this feature seems to have got lost over the last 8 years - I can't believe I'm the only one who has noticed.
