Then why not use TIMESTAMPs or DATETIMEs?  Changing the format of a
date/time string is a trivial and fast operation.  Plus using
DATETIMEs allows you to use any date from 1-1-0000 to 12-21-9999 as
opposed to just ~1970 to ~2037.  Both have the same flexibility as
using a timestamp stored as an int, in addition they give you more
flexibility to do calculations on the server using mysql's time
