Would like to have the ability to change the default calendar view from Days to Years when it initially pops up. One real world scenario when this would be very important would be when using the calendar to select a birthdate. The year could be 1950 so
it's not practical for someone to scroll back month by month, and users don't always understand they have to click the title twice to switch to year. Exposing a property like "InitialView" that could be set at design time or runtime would be ideal.
The calendar would pop up right to year selection, then month, then day.
Additionally, being able to specify the starting date (or date range if specifying an initial view of years) would bring it all together.
