I know that function - I'm using it currently in TortoiseSVN 'cause the
users requested a localized version of the date string.
I don't know the subversion code about this quite well but I
think subversion transforms the apr_time_t value to a string
just before passing it to the clients. If clients then have to convert
it back first that means wasting processor time.
