[rc5] Client feature suggestion

How about a client setting which would allow the user to specify the 
hours within which dial-out/network access is permitted?   This would 
allow those of us at home on single-line continuous PPP connections to 
only have the phone line tied up between, say, the hours of 2am and 8am.  
 Should access be required before then, it should go into random mode 
until the time slot.   This wasn't really an issue before, but now that 
you buffer 500 blocks (great), the line can be up for 10 or 15 minutes if 
traffic is slow.
