Wouldn't it just make sense to have a system time daemon, and the allow applications, the system, user land etc, all grab time information from it ?
Huh? Getting the current time is the least of the problems; it's just one function to call.
I still have no idea why locale and time have much to do with each other outside of time zone, which would be a time issue, not a locale issue.
It's about how time is formatted. Just like dates, the time is not formatted in the same way everywhere in the world. Ie. 8:00 pm in the US is 20:00 in Germany, and 20.00 in Finland.
