I beg to disagree.

If we're going to use an epoch, it should be the Operating System's
epoch. Anything else will lead to confusion and disorder ;P

And which OS epoch would that be?

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epoch_(reference_date)#Computing

I don't care what epoch we standardize on, as long as it's consistent across platforms.
