Brief opinion on the message format: I think we need to look at
the various reasons (time_t size among them) which would motivate
us to change it to XML. I don't think we really want to reproduce
in Pubcookie what Shibboleth has done with SAML, but something
more lightweight perhaps, if there are good enough reasons. It's a
planning activity we should have, focused on the continued role of
Pubcookie and where we want to make forward-looking investments.
Maybe UWisc would like to host the 2nd International Pubcookie
Summit? Or is it time to try video conferencing again?
Right now, however, I'm focused on immediate issues for 3.3.0, and
(back to the orginal topic) we're pretty much sold on the
pbc_time_t concept if you want to take a stab at it.
