Well, they may have no desire to tell the software community they
suck, but the software certainly sucks, in the sense that it doesn't
represent reality, i.e. leap seconds.

The two solutions are: 1) change the software standards to match
reality, or 2) change reality to match the software standards. If
there was a third, I've missed it.
