Make VST date+time fields DATETIME instead of CHARACTER

The subject explains it all:

VST tables are filled with dates and times, for instance _Connect._Connect-Time  these fields are always (except possibly _KeyEvt._KeyEvt-Date) character fields. Make them datetime(-tz) instead, or add corresponding datetime fields.

Status update

We are working on updating all of the viable VST requests in a future release.
