We do, but this is in the C side of the code and is used in a call to
svn_parse_date(), which wants an apr_time_t. I'd have to jump through a
lot of hoops to call Perl's time() call, which of course may only
provide a 32-bit value or call the systems time() call which has the
same issue. Thus apr_time_now() is the best option.
