Calendar: typematic for year selection

(it was recommended that I repost my email to the user list here; first post, hope this is the right way)

The dateTextBox has years at the bottom of the calendar. To move to a previous or following year requires a mouse click.

If a dateTextBox were used to, for example, "Enter your Date of Birth", my arthritic 90 something year old great grandmother would be sitting there for the next four hours clicking with a crippled hand and not enjoying a bit of it.

Would it be possible to enhance the dijit so that clicking and holding down the mouse button would let the years (in|de)crement until the mouse button is released, preferably with an accelerator (at 1 sec. intervals 90 years is a minute and a half. At 90 one is running out of time ;)?

This is a type of accessibility issue. Since the fastest growing internet demographic is between 70 and 75 years of age it would help a great many of our newest users.

On second thought I should treat this as a separate ticket. It's coupled with #6570, but asking for something simpler than #10002.

Actually, Calendar used to work this way, until [24583]. I think I meant to exclude typematic support from CalendarLite, but I forget my intentions for Calendar.

Given that no one has shown interest in creating a patch in the past 3+ years, I'm closing this as patchwelcome.
