Calendar Upgrade for Vaadin 7

I've posted a similar/shorter post in the wrong category. I know I am a lowly user of vaadin and I do not have any influence over vaadin 7. All that being said..

If the Calendar could be upgraded to allow for ranges and multiple days it would be great. The mode would be a toggle on the object, keeping the legacy behavior there for default mode. Otherwise you could switch the component into a multi day mode where you could either select multiple individual days or you could select a range.

Initially I thought the <SHIFT> and <CRTL> keys could be used control the multiple and range selection but I think it could get cumbersome. As to whether or not a single calendar would allow for the selection of multiple days and ranges at the same time or not would dependent on implementation difficulty. Keeping them mutually exclusive would allow you to use a right click action for "marking" days or ranges without the need to explain what the right click did. However if both selection modes were avilable, a double right click could be used for marking a single day and the single right click could be used to define ranges.

Anyways I'm probably rambling at this point. At the end of the day if there is anyone else out there who would like to see this feature can you point me to your threads /ideas. If you're a power broker in the vaadin 7 world, want to let me know if there are plans to enhance calendar or if there is some way to slip someone a $20 bill to get something like this in?
