Shows a simple clock in the console

A console clock with the current time.
Configures screen to always display the clock in the last line (has to be configured only once).
After that you not only have got the possibility to detach sessions and run them in background, but also have got a nice clock permanently on your screen.
This command will automatically clear the old clock time, and show the new clock time.
It will also slightly format it.
If you can do better, submit your command here.
