IMHO, adding a second field is definitely overkill. It seems like the 
right thing to do is define a "not set" value, whatever it is, and stick 
with that. Right now it is 0, though perhaps only as an accident of 
history. It makes more sense to have a special value for "not set" 
different than 0, since 0 is a valid date.

At this point I don't care either way. If this requires an ABI bump, how 
do I go about submitting a patch for it?
