Subject: Finding out when "NOW" is in a sequence

In sequence code, I need to check for an aged epics record value. I can get 
a record timestamp with pvTimeStamp, but I can't find a way to get the current 
time short of doing a pvPut,PvGet,pvTimeStamp sequence to another record.

The function TsDiffAsDouble does nicely in calculating a difference in seconds.

Does anyone have a good suggestion on getting the current time? (pvNow)
