> org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.TimestampType.dateStringToTimestamp() contains a regular
expression that checks to see if the String argument contains a number.  If so it parses it
as a long timestamp.  However pre-epoch timestamps are negative and the code doesn't account
for this so it tries to parse it as a formatted Date.  A tweak to the regular expression in
TimestampType.dateStringToTimestamp() would solve this issue.
> I could use formatted date strings instead, but the TimestampType date parser uses ISO8601
patterns which would cause the timestamp to be rounded to the nearest second.
> Currently I get the following exception message:
> unable to coerce '-86400000' to a  formatted date (long)
