XMLRPC::DateTime

This class is important to handle XMLRPC dateTime.iso8601 values, correcly, because normal UNIX-dates, ie: Date, only handle dates from year 1970 on, and ruby's native Time class handles dates without the time component.

XMLRPC::DateTime is able to store a XMLRPC dateTime.iso8601 value correctly.
