> I have a proposal to create a global variable in ActiveMQ's internals which alters the
value of System.getCurrentMillis(). Thanks to this we should be able to synchronize clients
connected to a JMS server (equipped with an additional NTP server for example) with out modifying
their system dates.
> Scenario:
> 1. Servers system date is sync'ed with an NTP server.
> 2. Clients retrieve their time difference from the NTP server
> 3. The client set ActiveMq...setTimeDifferenceToServer(...)
> 4. Every call for system millis in ActiveMQ sources looks like this: System.getCurrentMillis()
+ ActiveMq...getTimeDifferenceToServer() 
> I think it also would be an good idea to wrapper the System.getCurrentMillis() in a internal
ActiveMQ method and never call it again directly. This would allow the above modifications
and perhaps a to transit to System.nanoTime() to indicate millis in the future which is far
more  accurate (getCurrentMillis() has a 0-20ms error range).
