    The following patch helps in improving the performance of

    DateTime.Now does a lot of work currently as it needs to convert a
system time into the local time zone.  This patch caches a common value:
the current year at the time of initialization, and uses that fast code
path instead of the slower one most of the time.

    People running software that crosses the year boundary will still
get the slower version, I could fix that if we think its important.
