Yes, and others are criticized for using the same shorthand.

Yes, could have been, but it is *not* something else. And if aunt had

things actually are.
IE date is numerical value corresponding to UTC. And the majority of the
relevant functions use localization as well as your system clock, which
makes this not so handy.

Are we finally at the same page?
