COM dates

I did it the Python way: I looked at what I really needed, looked at the
documentation to see what I had, and wrote a 3 line function that takes
year, month, date, hour, minute and second and returns time in the same
numeric format as time.time().

I knew about mxDateTime and think it's really cool (I have written something
similar in C++ years ago), but for many reasons, I don't want to rely on
extensions for this particular project.
