Patch including function plus testcase

The function EDATE (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/edate-function-HP010342465.aspx) should also be part of POI.
I implemented a function incl. a testcase for it.

Would be great if you add that to your distribution some time.

I implemented his solution, worked fine... but would really like to see this implemented in the core library.

Several of our internal test tools use excel created spreadsheets. but we have a use case where these functions need to be updated programatically.

Implementing this solution seems the only course.
