Survey: singular or plural for datetime component setters?

ColdFusion is adding date/time component setters methods to CFML, eg: myDate.setYear() etc. The ticket covering this is here: 3374275: Add granularity to createDateTime().

The methods could be implemented with a singular term for the date component, or plural. EG: setHour() or setHours(). There's currently some disagreement over the approach to take here.

I thought I'd put it to the CFML community, so have concocted a brief survey to ask the question: Date component setter methods for CFML. It basically asks what your preference is for each method, and there's a box for other observations.

Please go fill it out if you can be arsed.
