What an impressive list of date formats, thanks. I think we
should (at first) stick to Gregorian and Julien dates for
input/output methods. Your "absolute date" basis seems to be
a reasonable internal format for the date integer. Time
could be encoded as double expressing seconds since midnight.
This is pretty accurate and allows for leap seconds etc.
