That's such an interesting idea, Jon!

I'm going to think about designing the pager with the slider. Readings
on the slider would have to change based on what the table is sorted by.
but this is coool!

never seen it used in commercial software I've used. But after some
thought I think this kind of UI component would be great for filtering
data in a table or list. 

Not only useful for filtering dates, you can also filter textual data as
well such as names (select the "Student Name" column of and filter for
only names beginning with E to G), and filtering for numerical values (
i.e. filter images in the Gallery that have pixel width between 800 to
1280 pixels, thus filtering out anything larger because it won't fit
nicely into the screen). This would imply that the slider would
dynamically change what it is filtering depending on what column is
selected in the table. 

I think the greatness lies in applications beyond dates, but help filter
data that is in a sequential order.
