I think you guessed right. IIRC, datetime has an underlying
representation of float8, and some of the special values like
"current" are represented as particular very-large or very-small
numbers. So it might break if your machine's float math is not
up to IEEE-float specs. However, you can do an awful lot of stuff
with datetime without ever needing the special values, so this
might not be much of a problem for you.
