F-ckin Leap Seconds, how do they work?

Rather than discussing the pros and cons of UTC and leap seconds, just 
create your own time system.

You could call it OpenTime.  OpenTime will use NTP servers where the 
Stratum 1 servers are synced to some time standard that doesn't care 
about leap seconds.  That way the consumer can chose to connect his 
machines to UTC or OpenTime.
