Log Message:
-----------
Remove the datetime keywords ABSTIME and RELTIME, which we'd been treating as
noise words for the last twelve years, for compatibility with Berkeley-era
output formatting of the special INVALID values for those datatypes.
Considering that the datatypes themselves have been deprecated for awhile,
this is taking backwards compatibility a little far.  Per gripe from Josh
Berkus.
