Actually, I think there is an easier way. I'd calculate the difference
between the 2 timestamps (divided by the number of divisions) to get the
the 'step' of the grid. Then I'd create time_iterator with the calculated
step to generate the values of the grid. If you haven't used the
time_iterator you might have a look at:
