Why do you think there is incompatibility? If there is a function to 
send a packet involving T1-timestamp to the server, why not it cannot be 
sent at a specific moment? I mean that the daemon can wait until the 
system time gets specific value (for example wait until the second unit 
of the system time changes), and then send the packet.
