Inukshuk CLI Utilities

I'm back to my old tricks, and feeling much better about it. Proper documentation for the urls util will be up by the end of the day, with coding starting sometime today.

Next on the list will be the timeclock utility, which will be named tc unless I can find good reason not to. The timeclock reporting utility will be tcr. Docs for those should be up in a week at the latest.

Modules vs. the easy way

The Python modules related to time and time calculation seem like naturals for tc and tcr, but the more I think about it, the more convinced I am to just keep track of things internally in standard Unix time format (seconds from the epoch).

Is there any reason why that's a bad idea? I would assume that Windows and Mac OS 9 have different epochs (in fact, I know they do), but I believe Python reports everything as per the Unix standard?
