There is an issue on on using time namespaces
to always run with with time set to 1970 (or some other date).  I can't
find it anymore though.  The problem was that the ‘real time’ clock could
not be adjusted.

Maybe we could rewind the other clocks anyway, even if the ‘real time clock’
cannot be adjusted?  Or maybe the inconsistency would cause problems ...

SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is set to 1 jan 1970 and likewise for the 'mtime'
and 'atime' of files in /gnu/store (or was it some other date?) though.
