There was a leap a little over 2 years ago, on 31 December 2005 23:59:60
It's already decided that there will be no leap in next June, so the
next open date is 31 December 2008. But DUT1 reached -0.4 seconds only
very recently, so maybe not yet... I'd bet on June 2009, when DUT1 will
be around -0.8 ;-)
