I've been trying to print a timestamp format (I mean seconds from 1 Jan 1970) with `date` program from coreutils package. There is an option -d but it does not take the numerical timestamp as an input.

Is there a chance to enhance the functionality by allowing the above? Or add an option like -t to read timestamp and then print it in one of allowed formats. It would be very convenient.

I tried to hack the sources myself, but it seems, I am not skilled enough to change the code and keep it consistent and working. So here comes my mail.
