I think the next time_t that you could plausibly argue is a round or otherwise ‘magic’ number is 0x50000000. And here's a curious coincidence:

chymax$ perl -le'print scalar localtime 1234567890'
Fri Feb 13 23:31:30 2009
chymax$ perl -le'print scalar localtime 0x50000000'
Fri Jul 13 12:01:20 2012

And so it came pass, the date of the Apocalypse was known to man.
