I guess the crux of the issue is 'appropriate offset':
March 1, 2005 - 1 month = February 1, 2005
March 28, 2005 - 1 month = February 28, 2005
April 15, 2005 - 1 month = March 15, 2005
What would be the proper value of '1 month'?
In any case, directly manipulating the os.date's table elements seems
to yield sensible results so far.
FWIW, here is a list of the currently implemented functions:
add, compare, date, dateWithJulianDay, dateWithValues, day, dayDate,
dayEndDate, dayOfWeek, dayOfYear, equals, hashCode, hour, init, isDST,
julianDay, minute, month, monthDate, monthEndDate, second, time,
timeZone, timeZoneOffset, toString, utc, utcDate, week, weekDate,
weekEndDate, weeksInMonth, year, yearDate, yearEndDate
