Do we have something (in the ports) to calculate easy the difference of
two times given as hh:mm - hh:mm? Some hack in bc(1) or something like
this? Well, I could translate the times into UNIX seconds of epoche,
build the diff and reconvert, but something more easy (and not in Perl
or C, just shell); thanks
