I've thought about it, but its hard, partially because there aren't
hooks in the time handling to deal with it. The offset is first used
before even init(8) has started, and the *todr functions would get
confused if things just jumped after boot time. I've been
contemplating changing the design of this whole thing a bit to
simplify the problem.
