@jamiem this is neat and i love seeing different ideas for this; on the other hand my first question is: how if at all does this address time zones that are not hour-integer offsets from UTC (notably, IST)?

@redoak Huh, I guess some problems are impossible to solve with any hope of being elegant. It looks like Htime takes these timezones into account: but for those on timezones with half hour offsets your are stuck doing math.
