[From the leapseconds list - good background on timekeeping in go]

This is an interesting proposal for fixing the Cloudflare leap second bug,
so that time interval calculations do sensible things even when the clock
is reset, without making an incompatible change to the existing APIs.



The existence of this discussion raises an interesting point.  Before we 
switch to any other language/environment, we should make an inventory of our 
existing POSIX calls and see if they are supported.  We should probably round 
that up to include OS specific calls too.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
