The date is always within 1 day (plus or minus).  I guess it would be
possible to implement a calendar addition and subtraction algorithm.
Is there one already available somewhere that could be used with this
bit packed structure in a test?

The time could be anything, except perhaps the seconds.  On my trials
with this, it always seems to have the seconds as zero.  I'm not sure
if you can set a timezone that has a delta with non-zero seconds.

On thinking about this, the way I'd do this is:

    if dates and times are equal then pass
    else check the rough rules as outlined

But is it ok (or even sensible to do):

    if (date1 == date2 && time1 == time2) ok(TRUE, "Blah");
    else { /* some other test */ }

or would you leave out the ok()?
