That there isn't a simple way to do it is a pretty nasty strike against having
a standard implementation.
I'm surprised though that int64 wouldn't suffice. Any language that supports
more than a couple popular OS platforms is going to need have some logic
somewhere for moving back and forth between whatever its preferred date/time

Java). Have I unwittingly made a bug, or do your complications come from a
