Bar Type with User controlled start times


It seems to me that there should be a bar type that can 'start' at a specific time.

Almost all of the bar types start at either the session start or at midnight.
If a 5 min bar starts at the market open, or 2 minutes before the open, you will get different bar patterns.
So being able to start at a specific time would be an interesting concept.

I know you can define your own session times but that seems very awkward if you change the start times often.
(if using moon phases or solunar tables).

Does anyone know of such a bar type or a way to modify an existing bar type?
