The constructor for DateTime object currently takes a string 
as a parameter. In most of the scenarios that I have encountered I need to create a DateTime object from UTC timestamp. Can the constructor  be changed to accept string or integer?

That would be too confusing, as PHP auto casts and "20070119" is something quite different from the unix timestamp 20070119. What you can do is pass this to the ctor: "@20070119" - the @ makes it interpret as a Unix timestamp.
