Guess a list of requirements was all the person was able to do. Ahh well some good ideas in there anyway.

Also an entry in the trac about adding a clock to any menu:

Now thats not quite what I was looking to build but an interesting idea anyway.

My first attempt at putting the binClock code in didn't have any effect - not surprising from the quick code mashup I performed.
