[Feature request] Schedule downloads with more precision

Hello, this is actually a re-post of a feature request I posted here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=54025&start=10

I see now that I had it posted in the wrong place originally.

I am a happy user of the Deluge scheduler feature. I use it because I live on a metered link, which becomes unmetered during a few hours during the night.

There is one thing that I miss, though - it's the ability to set my schedules with a little more precision than only on hourly boundaries. For example, being able to set my downloads to run from 00h30 to 5h30 (a 15 minutes precision would be even better, but I'm not sure it would be easy to fit visually inside the plugin window). Any chance for such evolution to happen in some distant future?

Rationale: my ISP is providing me an uncapped link during specific hours at night (00h00-06h00). Problem is, their clock is off by a few minutes, so I have to apply some margin on my side. Currently I "loose" 2 hours of downloads because of this (have to set the scheduler to 01h00-05h00). Having the ability to set 00h30-05h30 instead would be a huge improvement (or better 00h15-05h45)

As a simple work around could you just offset your pc clock by 15-30 minutes?

That's the same workaround that I have suggested. :D
