That would be great.

So to fit even better it should be renamed fso-atd. (I have not looked
at git.freesmartphone.org for similar projects when selecting the

atd-over-fso is currently styled as a patch on top of
${HANDHELDS_CVS};module=apps/atd;tag=ATD-0_70 to be put into
~/moko/local/packages tree (my overlay over org.openmoko.stable, no
fso yet) by

$ make install

but it would be more sane to include patched version into the
git.freesmartphone.org repository and then refer to the supposed


in the recipe (as fso-gpsd). What do you think? 

I must confess atd-over-fso does little cheating -- as plain atd it
sets RTC clock from sytem clock before setting an alarm with
org.freesmartphone.Time.Alarm.SetAlarm().  It sets RTC clock directly
as org.freesmartphone.Device.RealtimeClock.SetCurrentTime() says I
have no rights to use it (do not have the actual message at hand), and
even that would be a hack, as org.freesmartphone.Time.Alarm.SetAlarm()
should do this IMHO (I should open a bug report on this).
