And if you want to understand why it is like that, it's because in 2000,
when I designed Gambas from VB, I took its date functions, but there
were a lot of incoherences.
To fix that, I decided that some of the functions assumes GMT, and other
the timezone in use. And in both cases I had to have one function that
converts from string to date, and one that converts from date to string.
