request for small API change

I noticed that the new function "svn blame" has a callback
function which provides the date as a string. I think this
should be changed so that an svn_time_t value is returned
instead of a string. That way clients can create a string
for a date as they want (e.g. with localization).
I think formatting dates/times to strings should be left
to each client and not go into the subversion library itself.

What do you think? Good or bad idea?

while at it: the svn_log_message_receiver_t callback
also returns the date as a string - that should be changed
too. I haven't found any other place where the date is
returned as a string but I'm not sure if I found all of them.
