    What about keeping times with format similar to "06 June 2001, at 18:06:56
    +0200" instead of using miliseconds from 01 Jan 1970 ? ;)

    If there is a universally-accepted measure for temperatures, we should use
    it, and let user space applications make the conversions for us.

    Just my 0.02 (eurocents :)
