Function that converts an expression into a date value

#1
It would be great to have a Function that converts an expression into a date value.

For example;
Code:
@CDate["January 7, 2017"]
@CDate["Jan 7, 2017"]
@CDate["January 7 2017"]
would all return 1/7/2017

Using @Script, I was able to use the VBScript CDate function, but since @Script no longer works in TCC, having CDate as part of TCC would be great.
