Then .POSIXct should gain the ellipses as an argument if you don't want
to break code that relies on as.POSIXct.Date accepting superfluous

throw an error when passed an invalid timezone string. But that would be
more difficult to change.

Thank you and the rest of R-core for maintaining and improving one of my
work tools and my favorite programming language!
