  Boost has pretty good Date/Time support, I used it for Cygnal's
network timing support. It might be worth investigating if this can help
with the Date class.

Mmm that looks good, but Flash time/date behaviour turns out to be so
bizzarre that I expect using a library that cleanly distinguishes
between local time objects and UTC time objects actually to make it
harder to emulate the behaviour of its methods, which all appear to
fiddle with a single internal double-precision float.

Well, to really emulate it, we should also reverse-engineer its
internal DST rules to change daylight saving time on the wrong day of
the year too :-/
I didn't bother doing that; it uses the system (Posix) rules at present.

Gnash does not currently require the boost date_time library package,
and the current date getting/setting methods now seem to work the same
as flash player, but I can reimplement it using that if you wish. It's
only time...
