I assume the leap second tangle is so avoid breaking some very old test cases
by bumping them into the current epoch.
The code I was expecting doesn't know anything about leaps.
It would be close to:
while (t < PIVOT) t += 1024*7*86400
Where PIVOT would be the release date in seconds.
Are there any GPS units old enough to need to get bumped twice?
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
