In ptime I arbitrarily chose to represent UTC timeline of RFC 3339 can 
represent (i.e. 0000-01-01 00:00:00 UTC to 9999-12-31 23:59:59 UTC). I don't 
have a particular strong opinion about the precision.  

It doesn't mean that we need to have the same representation capabilities as 
ptime for the results given by CLOCK, but it seems to me that this ERP 64-bit 
is a bit too constrained as it only allows to represent time from the epoch 
1970 until around 2106 CE (epoch + 2^32 / 86_400 / 365).
