I'll look into wrapping it up a bit first. This code is written
very much for comp.text.tex posting: \modulonumber is already
present in ConTeXt, my macro names are optimized for shortness,
and there is a slower but better definition of the integer divide
possible (without multiplication):

My macro does something that wasn't there yet: it calculates a
'week number' based on the current date: \weeknumber{31}{12}{2006}
expands to 52 (and my macro is fully expandable).

The internal macro \Jday calculates the current julian day, and
that can help make \getdayoftheweek much shorter:


Best, Taco
