Until now I used a (different) bogus date for each track, because  
that way I can still get nice lines between track points in josm. If  
I use 0 everywhere, I have to disable the line drawing or I'll just  
get a zigzag nightmare!

But I have only uploaded four or five tracks so far, so the damage is  
limited (and all with dates from the 1970s...)
