No, iCalendar uses a text-encoded date format.  For example:

DTSTART: 19980119T070000Z

for 07:00 AM Jan. 19, 1998.

gnome-pim (and Evolution, at least to this point) use time_t as a convenient internal representation.  It 
might be wise, at this point, to switch to struct tm, especially if I need to go in and replace all the 
time_t's with a structure anyway (to handle timezonification)...
