That is not as trivial as you point out (I'm sorry, I only read this 
after my first post in this thread). The document() function, when 
called with the same arguments, must guarantee that the result is the 
same between calls. That means that this *real* date/time you are 
talking about will only be the real time once. Unless you use the 
technique I described earlier.
