This is another one of those where the devil is in the details.  Just 
having a function to pass through the value to C's time() would be 
trivial.  (About 10 lines of code added to ulib_std.cpp)  However, with 
support for time comes time zones, daylight savings time, conversions 
between local time and universal time, addition and subtraction of time, 
etc.  And then it's a big pain in the ass.
