Yes, this is the correct approach.

But the implementor should be careful that they don't break existing
working copies. We all have old-style dates sitting in our entries
files; svn_time_from_nts() should be able to recognize *either*
format of date-string, even though svn_time_to_nts() will be writing
out ISO dates.
