seems like a strange thing to include for human convenience.

huh, i can't seem to find this in the manpages, so we should fix that.
i was going to quote them, but it seems like we didn't write any.

but i feel like mentioning that if you typed into dhcpd.conf;

	db-time-format local;

then the times show up as seconds since epoch, with a #, then the
local time (local timezone) as a comment for human consumption.
