PmWiki _also_ uses strtotime, but it also checks for some things
that strtotime doesn't quite understand properly:

    yyyy-mm-dd          ISO date
    yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm    ISO date+time
    @nnnnnnnnn          Unix timestamp

If the time format doesn't match any of the above, then PmWiki
calls strtotime and uses that.
