RT 3.9 Question on Custom Fields - Type = "Date"

To BP Gurus,

I am on 3.8.7 and not wanting to wait for “Date” Custom Fields, I added
Emmanuel Lacour’s code to allow it. This was before 3.8.8 came out.

My BIG question is: With the latest RT versions coming out (3.9.x or
whatever), will I have to do a lot of re-engineering to my
DataBase
(Oracle) to get the Tables relating to CustomFields
(CUSTOMFIELDVALUES,
OBJECTCUSTOMFIELDVALUES, TICKETS) to keep this functionality working?

My second NOTSOBIG question is: will we be able to modify the “display
format” for these dates (drop the time from the display) like we do with
regular RT Ticket date fields?

Thanks a heep for your time and patience on these questions.
