But that would create duplicated code of LocalTimeToUniversal,
UnixToDateTime, IncMilliSecond functions in SysUtils and DateUtils.

EpochToLocal is equivalent to UnixToDateTime, except the later is more
efficient and better named. Also, I found at least 4 copies of
EpochToLocal in RTL for some reason, one of which suggests to use
UnixToDateTime instead ;)
Assuming that UniversalTime function must reside in SysUtils, I see
* Option A: Duplicate necessary functions from DateUtils to SysUtils.
* Option B: Move necessary functions from DateUtils to SysUtils.
* Option C: Include DateUtils in RTL, so that we cant use its functions
Option C seems to be the cleanest. Am I wrong to think that?
