I know that ymd_hms deals with it graciously as of #158 but am I lazy or correct in expecting as_datetime to infer ISO-8601?

as_datetime is a light wrapper around as.POSIXct so it will have same issue. I will add a specialized method for characters that would rely on internal parser. Thanks for bringing this up.
