I dislike that too. Luckily, it doesn't happen too often for me. I try to avoid it by using format-time-string instead of decode-time.

What do Common Lisp hackers do? Common Lisp has a similar function decode-universal-time, so they must have a similar problem.

Where in the source code would you put the accessors?
