Could you not use something like the timestamp of some file (e.g. the 
drift file) or other system file to get the approximate year?  I haven't 
studied the code (I find C not easy to read or navigate) so perhaps it 
already does this.  Then you would only need to set the real time once?

As it happens, all of my RPi pack will have an Internet source as well, 
and they all have recent GPS receivers which (I hope) don't have this
