I think it is widely agreed that the time and date structures in the
standard libraries are brok^H^H^H^Hslightly less than useful.
I suggest you feel free to rewrite it as you see fit, and then lobby
for its inclusion in the hierarchical libraries.
(My preju^H^Hference would be to store a date-time internally in a
posix-like manner (seconds,microsecond since the epoch).)
