What's hard to parse about it?  

If you using a language that's well suited to parsing text, for
example, perl, then its trivial.

In fact, if you're using perl, then the Date::Parse module has a
function that will take the Last Update time and turn into a utime
value for you: str2time().  

Go to www.cpan.org and start groping from there...

BTW, I recommend telling vos to print GMT values, so the timezones
have no chance of confusing anything (timezone's cause confusion since
that rules for timezones, such as daylight savings time, can change
from year to year, and the underlying config files can be ouyt of

TZ=GMT vos examine ...
