If anyone is interested, decoding the TAI64N timestamps produced by
s6-log with nosh's version of tai64nlocal produces the same result as
doing so with s6-tai64nlocal, and decoding the TAI64N timestamps
produced by nosh's cyclog with s6-tai64nlocal produces the same result
as doing so with nosh's tai64nlocal. At least on my system without a
"right/" timezone.

On the other hand, I just realized that cyclog does not seem to
properly finalize the 'current' file (including the setting of the
execute-by-owner permission) when it exits normally. Perhaps the
destructor of class 'logger' should call logger::flush_and_close()
rather than logger::close()?
