I think Sam's idea was to use what the platform offers i.e.
struct tm is widely use and there is so many functions that uses it
instean of having another structure. If need be the generated
struct tm could be use in strftime() etc ..

Probably did not for see that TimeZone was such a pain 8-).

Unfortunately will not be able to follow discussion this weekend
going temporary offline.  One of my disk is behaving funny.
