I cannot be certain because it seems that a significant portion (the
more generic portion) of the library is not documented, except for the
doxygen-generated files, but my impression is that ptime represents a
time in a specific time zone. Also, while the more generic portions of
the library seem to support various user-specified precisions, ptime
(the only time-point representation documented) is limited to a specific
implementation-defined precision.
