Going *really* off-topic here, but in true EU style it may well end
up a total mess with all different countries choosing to either stay in DST
or 'regular' time permanently.

So that could potentially lead to an 'interesting' patchwork of timezones 
across the region.

Slowly some noises in the EU halls of power starting to appear now that it's 
likely better to take some more time for this and try to reach a single 
agreed-on 'time selection' decision for the whole region.

So there may be some hope for a sane result..

Now back to your regular scheduled UN*X history channel programming!

								Bye, Arno.
