No way!!  There's lots of missing stuff which could be added.  eg. off
the top of my head, strftime(3).

It would also be useful to have a comprehensive time / date library,
probably outside the Unix module.  As part of the perl4caml project
I've wrapped up Perl's Date::Parse, Date::Format and Date::Calc[1]
modules, but a general OCaml library would be great.
