Yes. The XML-RPC spec is quite vague. It claims that the dates are in ISO
8601 format, but doesn't say anything more about it. The example shows a
string without hyphens (but with colons), so I stuck with eactly that.

There's nothing in the XML-RPC spec about the resolution of time, so, again,
I'd rather be conservative in what we generate.
