It has always annoyed me that we can't write '+infinity' for dates and
timestamps and get the OCD satisfaction of making our queries line up
with '-infinity'.

I wrote a fix for that some time ago but apparently never posted it. I
was reminded of it by jian he in the Infinite Interval thread, and so
here it is.
