The Mary Poppins edition specifies that the optional time-zone argument
to ENCODE-UNIVERSAL-TIME, if specified, suppresses checking for daylight
savings time. It does not say that it does the same thing for
DECODE-UNIVERSAL-TIME, and it does not deny that. Which is right?
Currrently our implementation treats the two functions consistently,
which may be in violation of the manual.
