Looks good!  I have committed your changes as SVN revision 20040 and 
added you to the authors list - thanks taking the time to implement this 

I made a few minor changes to formatting to line up tabs, spacing, etc.  

I removed the comment about being linked against the GNU C library as 
that's only the case on (Linux?) and not other systems we support, such 
as the BSDs.  Anyway, time_t is defined so that 0 = epoch (Jan 1 1970 
00:00:00) on any standard system so it is ok in your code.

I added the new e option to -t to the wireshark.pod / tshark.pod (for 
man pages and HTML help pages) and the User's Guide 
(docbook/wsug_src/WSUG_chapter_customize.xml).  Finally, I removed two 
unused variables from col_set_epoch_time in column-utils.c to squelch 
compiler warnings.
