What's the recommended way for serializing (with the cereal package) an UTCTime?
It's easy to give Serialize instances for UTCTime and Day:
instance Serialize UTCTime where
get = liftM2 UTCTime get get
put (UTCTime day time) = put day >> put time
instance Serialize Day where
get = liftM Day get
put = put . toModifiedJulianDay
However I have no idea how to serialize the DiffTime stored in an UTCTime:
instance Serialize DiffTime where
get = ?
put = ?
