Ok, no problem. Feel free to use its ideas, as the binary search is quite inefficient.
Overflow detection can be added, which will be done, if we have time.
I'm not sure whether leap second detection is absent. Anyhow, if you say on beforehand
that you are not interested in a fixed version, I don't spend much hurry to it.
