Yeah, I'm pretty sure I ran into this years ago, but it's foggy now what
platform/compiler. It's at least partially the reason that date_time has
'ptime' instead of just 'time'.

Anyway, Dave's answer is right unless you want to rename the class to
something besides time. I'd guessing that what you are actually representing
is a 'time_duration' as defined by ISO 8601, boost date_time, and others.
That's a different concept than a 'time' which is a dimensionless point in the
time continuum.
