Well, "old" CRT returned NULL when input was negative. It's documented
in MSDN and quite obvious when looking at source code. I dunno if
returning NULL makes them "better" or not; it depends on what you do
with result. However, if you test the result for NULL, probably you
might test time_t value instead for negative, before actually calling
