I don't see how that could work, as the epoch for GetSysTime is power-on, not 
any fixed date. Anyway, that sort of fooling around with OS internals should be 
out of scope for the tz project. If what's already in tzcode suffices for the 
particular time() implementation you're linking to, that should be good enough.
