Dang. The functions hang off a package-global instance of the BDT module
class, and that one doesn't seem to get updated from the date you feed. Not
Workaround: init a new object using the explicit constructor with the date
you want and compute off that:
R> mynewdate <- new(bdtDate, 2012,9,5)
R> mynewdate$getEndOfBizWeek( )
R> mynewdate$getEndOfMonth( )
