It's just a vertical shear changing along the X axis of the existing
delta T plots.

I'm not in a position to put up a "pick your own length of second and
replot" cgi-bin page right this moment, but if there's interest I can
post my file of delta T values gleaned from tables in the Stephenson
and Morrison publications -- that goes to 1962. For after that my
plots just use C04 from Daniel Gambis and friends at the obspm.fr
bureau of IERS.
