      Description

      Add an efficient/fast/garbage free getDateTimeMillis method.

      That converts to epoch time without creating garbage. There doesn't seem to be an equivalent garbage free method on the new API, and this looks like an oversight.

      Conversion to epoch is important and doing it efficiently was a core reason many where using JodaTime. It would be a shame to lose it.
