Description:
Timestamps fields are formatted on I/O. This is kinda unusable in C or PHP. Could an option be added to transfer timestamp fields as ints?

Sounds like a feature request. Why severity S3 then?

It's more like a bug in the design than a new feature. But yeah, feature request might be more appropriate technically.
