[plt-dev] Serializable SRFI 19 dates and times

I wrote the patch on a fresh copy of time.ss taken from the head of trunk. I'm pretty sure Sam's patch was in there at that point. In fact, I just did "svn up" to check and it didn't change anything.

There's another SRFI issue that I'd like to bring up while we're on the subject. I'll do it in a separate thread for the sake of search engines.

Sam included a fix for the date-nanoseconds being off by a factor of 100. It now passes the tests that were added to catch that particular bug. Someone who knows what they're doing - i.e., not me - should probably update the leap seconds table based on the 2009 data. The latest update seems to have been in 2006. Instructions are in the code.
