^In formats 5 through 7, the "T" is a literal character separating 
the date and the time, as required by 
[http://www.w3c.org/TR/NOTE-datetime | ISO-8601]. 
^Formats 8 through 10 that specify only a time assume a date of 
2000-01-01. Format 11, the string 'now', is converted into the 
current date and time as obtained from the xCurrentTime method
of the [sqlite3_vfs] object in use.
