OK... but I'd add a strong caveat that solutions which require software
to know what time it is are to be avoided if at all possible.
I am not saying "deploy some code in IE now, and have it turn itself on
in six months". I am saying "write a patch for IE soon, and in six
months time check it in to your current development branch". If six
months turns into eight due to delays, and in the mean time the "current
development branch" of IE switches from branch A to branch B, that's no
big deal. Just check in when everyone's ready, or when you think the
remaining people complaining aren't important enough ;-)
