Yes, but the *problem* is that the fields in apr_exploded_time_t are
ints, and I'm getting conversion warnings. And I don't want to see a

You're parsing a date string, remember? That means your initial
assumption is that the date is well-formed. If somebody passes in
12:31:67, you should return an error, not normalize to 12:32:07.
