I need more features on the jQuery datepicker

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am about to install the jQuery datepicker into my application, but already know I need a given feature. When asking the user for his/her birthday, the user needs to be able quicky enter the year. But the problem I see if that the default datepicker expects the user to click the left arrow button (on the top of the calendar control) to decrement the year. But since I am pretty sure it's been used to enter birthdays before (LOL), I wanted to ask how to do that.

Could someone provide me the jQuery configuration I need to make the datepicker's calendar easily skip to a year much earlier??
