This business of leap seconds makes me wonder. The last I read about times
on the network, the entire issue of leap seconds was ignored; RFC 868 simply
says "the number of seconds since 00:00 1 January 1900". None of the examples
indicate any leap seconds (but were they any before May 1983?). So, what are
the time servers returning, the 32-bit value with leap seconds or without
them? I hope it's the latter!
