That's what I thought at first too, until I read David Edmondson's mail:
He points out that decode-time assumes seconds since the Unix epoch
whereas time-to-days calculates the offset in days since early CE, hence the
calculation is off by 1970 years.

I did a git blame on time-to-days and days-to-time and nothing seems to
have changed recently, so I'd guess Carsten just misremembered.
