Guardian discussion of Multiple time systems
Just a quick note to the list, something that is occurring in other
standards bodies which this list should be thinking about as well.
The article above is on the now at least 4 different systems of time that
are in use (mostly differing by the use or not of leap seconds). As the
article discusses, computers "can" navigate through these, but there is a
definite risk of programming errors or bugs.
