    A RestDataSource with dataFormat:"json" would parse that for you if the field was declared as datetime and the data was requested by that DataSource. Outside of that, if you already have it in memory, there's not really an approach that's going to be quicker than the obvious for loop to get the data in the right format before providing it to the DataSource.
