[uf-discuss] datetime-design-pattern

Unfortunately (if I'm remembering correctly) those only deal with 
datetimes (w3c + rfc) and dates (w3c). The issue of time and durations 
is coming up so I thought I'd get that in there using the same 
philosophy of thought: i.e. pick the most reasonable thing and put it in 

I'm not going to attempt to reinvent anything here; ISO 8601 all the 
way. Unfortunately (if I'm remembering correctly again), ISO doesn't 
believe in letting people know what their standards are unless they pay 
money so I attempted to copy the minimum amt of info to make it clear 
what we're talking about.

Regards, etc...
