Or use POSIX time_t and a function that determines the number of leap
seconds between two absolute time_t values... except that it wouldn't
work when either of those absolute time_t values falls on a leap second
boundary, and wouldn't work if the list of leap seconds it uses is out
of date (or doesn't cover the whole period for time_t values in the future).
