Datepicker show/hide on hover/mouseout

It would be great to show the datepicker on hover over the .datepicker element.

When the hover option is selected (versus focus or icon) the user wouldn't be required to press escape or click elsewhere on the page to kill the active datepicker calendar.

Instead, mousing out would close the datepicker. It'd also be great to allow for a configurable delay so that errant mouseouts wouldn't close the datepicker prematurely. The superfish plugin is a good example of this functionality if I'm not explaining it clearly enough.

You should just bind event handlers for this on your own and programmatically open and close the datepicker. It's also worth noting that the mouseout/mouseleave behavior will be bad if the user has opted into actually interacting with the datepicker.
