OK.  I can see where that is a strong argument for TAI64n.  I have tried
to develop a way of converting from TAI64n to a human readable format
but I'm afraid I'm having difficulty comprehending the format.  Has
anyone written any perl/python code that translates to a human readable
format?  Or can offer a brief "pseudo-code" algorithm?

Or even a more clear description of the format would be helpful.  Dan's
writeup left me a bit lost...
