thank you thank you!!! no it wasn't intentional, I intended to put back 
the orig code here ( in 3.4 )

this change ( the variant )  is what is on master, here the intention is 
as Andrew pointed out ( in a previous mail discussing the regression )  
to allow operations on date types return dates ( regardless of the 
operation ) which seems reasonable.
I didn't intend to commit this variant to 3.4, just restore the orig 
code, seems though I copied the wrong part of the the diff output from

I will commit the orig fix, thanks for spotting that
