I'm not sure whether this is strictly speaking a bug or a feature request, but strtotime doesn't seem to be able to interpret the output from a PostgreSQL 7.3.3 "timestamp" field.

Reproduce code:

$from_postgres = '2004-08-09 14:48:27.304809+10';

echo strtotime($from_postgres);


Expected result:
It should print the unix timestamp for the given date.

Actual result:

It's a feature request (and this is already working in the new date/time parsing routines for 5.1.x)
