A long? Which libraries?

I don't really do Java, but as far as I can tell the javhl bindings
use Date, see org.tigris.subversion.javahl/LogMessage.java. Goggle
tells me that Java's Date is in milliseconds so the javahl bindings
don't return the full timestamp.

On Java perhaps :) Does Java have a time/date class that represents
microseconds? If not then the bindings would need to use something
other than, or in addition to, the native Java type.
