The following is a pure Ruby-based patch to address the issues raised in [Bug 10588 Invalid Dates](http://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10588):

~~~ruby
class SmartTime < Time
  def self.mktime year, month, day
    case month
    when 4, 6, 9, 11
      if day == 31
        raise ArgumentError, 'argument out of range _ APR, JUNE, SEP, NOV',caller
      else
        super
      end
    when 2
      case day
      when 30, 31
        raise ArgumentError, 'argument out of range _ FEB', caller
      when 29
        if year%100 == 0
          if year%400 == 0
            super
          else
            raise ArgumentError, 'argument out of range _ FEB', caller
          end
        else
          if year%4 == 0
            super
          else
            raise ArgumentError, 'argument out of range _ FEB', caller
          end
        end
      else
        super
      end
    else
      super
    end
  end
end
~~~

Another version of this patch with a light-hearted commentary, using the same algorithm but a slightly different approach, is available at: [otherimran.wordpress.com](http://otherimran.wordpress.com/2015/01/02/ruby-invalid-dates-patch/)

Ruby is a mature, productive programming tool. ItĄĮs not a silly toy. It doesnĄĮt deserve to have such dumb bugs lurking inside its coreclasses.

ThatĄĮs just me, exercising my right to politely protest the decision made by Ruby maintainers. I hope they would reconsider and fix it internally.
