[erlang-bugs] buggy comment in calendar.erl

My eye just happened to catch on this:

%% now_to_universal_time(Now)
%% now_to_datetime(Now)
%% Convert from now() to UTC.
%% Args: Now = now(); now() = {MegaSec, Sec, MilliSec}, MegaSec = Sec
%% = MilliSec = integer() 

The format of now() is {MegaSec, Sec, MicroSec}, not {MegaSec, Sec, MilliSec}.

It's just a commenting bug, since the function freely ignores the third element.
