Note that this is barely adequate since a "typical"
double has 53 bits of mantissa (not counting
the sign bit) which can handle just under 16 decimal digits
while time() currently returns 9 digits but will soon return
10, while $$ is typically no more than 5
digits (total will soon be 15 digits).
Doing the conversion to base-62 in two steps would give
you lots of room (and different results).
