By the way, by far the most common support request I have at my pool is

For 0.7 we've added a red "(out of sync)" warning to the balances when the
block chain is out of date.

However, due to the design of the protocol there is a large variance in
block timings, and it is not possible to determine up-to-date status with
certainty, so quite a large safety margin is used. To be precise the
warning is shown when the last received block was generated more than 90
minutes ago.
