typedef calendar_type::day_of_week_type day_of_week_type;
typedef calendar_type::month_type month_type;
typedef calendar_type::year_type year_type;
typedef date_type::duration_type duration_type;

// construct/copy/destruct
last_kday_of_month(day_of_week_type, month_type);

// public member functions
