At the construction no exception will occur. But when I do:

to_simple_string( t2 )

I will get an "Unknown exception". It's thrown at
gregorian_calendar.ipp[122], since the year is negative. I have no
idea how this can happen.

I was just thinking of how to store the time value in a database. It
seems to me that this would be the most efficient way of saving a
time. On this other hand when things change, like the internal
representation code will most likely break. So, I decided to store a
string, instead.

Thanks for the help.
