  Description     : Source for replacement of time funcion

>From the code:
  This is source for replacement of time funcion, which enables you
  to travel in time. It is usable for testing or it should help
  if you have any program which expires in any time period and uses
  shared libraries. I wrote this, because I want to get my old
  expired netscape to work for me.             
  set library libfaketime.so to load before any other :     
  export LD_PRELOAD=`pwd`/libfaketime.so                     
  then set env variable FAKE_TIME_DIFF to amount of seconds to
  travel in time (positive goes in past , nogative to future)  
  export FAKE_TIME_DIFF=-1000000                                
  than you should see with date command where are you in time :-)

I need to contact upstream about licensing, and versioning issues.
Expect an upload in a couple of weeks -> I am now marked as being on
vacation (going to GUADEC III tomorrow).
