Description of problem:
As can be shown on the Red Hat mailing list, NTP is not trival to setup.  In
several cases the accuracy that NTP provides may not be needed.  It would be
nice that if ntpd is not running that up2date will optionally syncronize with
RHN for time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set the time on a computer
2.Wait a month for the time to noticably drift
3.Run up2date
4.Notice that the time is still drifted

Actual Results:  This is a request for a new feature so not surprisingly the
drifted time remains the same.

Expected Results:  Provided that the new feature is implimented and network
latency to RHN is low enough, up2date should update the computer clock similar
to using rdate.
