Don't think that project will help much, as the zone is not part of the opaque structure, but is a separate parameter in their API: that won't cause many problems! ;^>
If we think back 15+ years, many problems were due to messing around with sub-chunks of dates, whether string, integer, or bits, instead of using the APIs provided to convert from one date representation to another. Is it September again in the date/time domain?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
