Fixing clock skew

Is there any way, from the library user's standpoint, to get the
krb5_error::stime out of TGS replies with KRB5KRB_AP_ERR_SKEW? If I could
do that, I could fix the system time from my client program without having
to worry about ntp or the like.
It would be nice if we could (optionally) get the whole krb5_error
structure or the equivalent (for that and other reasons), but looking at
the source I don't suppose that's possible. It looks like the data is
unconditionally freed in krb5_get_cred_via_tkt without being stashed
anywhere else first.
I suppose it's not available for ABI compatibility reasons. You guys take
all the fun out of dll hell. :(
