Compact versions? You mean non-delimited dates? They sort just fine numerically:
They also sort just fine if you add a two-digit serial number:
and while it's true that this format will overflow in two thousand
years if stored in a 32-bit number, it's fine for arbitrary future
dates if stored in bignums.
