Hmmm... it might work. The issue is, I'm not sure if Pg is getting
borked because:
1) it's seeing a date prior to epoch
2) it's seeing an out of order date...

Your idea would work if 1) not if 2)

Probably the Pg init script should just check the date and if it's
wrong, refuse to start Pg with a big nasty error msg.
