I don't see any loss of the OS/2 FPC community if 1 routine won't work
for them, supposing it is really impossible to implement it there.

Will things be better for the OS/2 FPC community if instead of only
OS/2 not having NowUTC noone has?

And to put things into their real perspective, what is the proportion
of OS/2 users in the FPC community? From source forge I'd say 0,005%
or less
