I got tridge to have a look at that patch, and he did some work on a
replacement.  (He didn't see exactly what it was trying to do).  What
was more interesting was seeing his IRC comments while coding a
replacement...  It seems POSIX is quite brain-dead in this area -
ignoring daylight savings, normalising the time struct, and generally
being 'helpful' :-).  (Of course, GMT is never on daylight savings).
