[R] Time conversion from Win32 64bit FILETIME?

Windows-32 has a time structure called FILETIME, a 64-bit value representing the number of 100-nanosecond intervals since January 1, 1601 (UTC). That is not a typo, the year is 1601.

Does anyone have a clue(or algorhithm)for how this is converted to something a little more POSIX-like ?

Thank you,
