The UDUNITS-2 package was never intended to be a calendaring package.  You'd be 
much better off using something designed for that (e.g., the "cdtime" package 
from LLNL).

You *can* convert values in some timestamp unit to double-precision seconds 
since the epoch using a value-converter returned by ut_get_converter().  You 
should then be able to use those values in another package to do what you want.
