I wrote a version of this, which was smart enough to handle multiple
invocations (in fact, it could be run from cron if you like, to readjust
the offset when DST changes occur), but it was rejected. I still
disagree with the reasoning, and I still think that the way NetBSD/Amiga
operates right now is argubaly a bug (it doesn't program the hardware
correctly, since the Amiga standard is that the hardware contains the
local time). But, I decided to live with it rather than starting
another ofshoot OS (sigh...).
