TIME, a string, can be specified absolutely or relative to now.
TIME can also be an integer, a number of seconds.
REPEAT, an integer number of seconds, is the interval on which to repeat
the call to the function. If REPEAT is nil, call it just once.
Absolute times may be specified in a wide variety of formats;
Something of the form `HOUR:MIN:SEC TIMEZONE MONTH/DAY/YEAR', where
all fields are numbers, will work; the format used by the Unix `date'
command will work too.
