Still designing with nanosecond precision between ptime's boundaries in mind 
(since I will support that anyway on my side there) one could actually 
interpret int * int * int as being a POSIX day count from the epoch, a second 
in that day, and a nanosecond in that second. That would make it 4 words per 
timestamp, i.e. 16 bytes on 32-bit and 32 bytes on 64-bit. It's just a little 
bit painful to work with.

If people only care about 100ns precision then a single int64 will do which 
would be 12 bytes on 32-bit and 16 bytes on 64-bit.
