We kind of need this for Clientside Validation:
When a date is selected with the datepicker, no change event is triggered on the select boxes. This means that behaviour for the user will be different selecting the date with the select boxes or selecting it with the datepicker if modules have a function bound to the change event of that select box (like clientside validation does).
Attached is a patch that adds this feature.
