I believe this is a known TODO, as I brought it up previously and 
Mathais talked about it. My suggestion was to show the icon of the 
modifier affecting the player in that player's status area.

How important is knowing the actual time? I had suggested two modes:
1. draw a 'clock' overlay (solid translucent overlay that shrinks in 
pie-slice fashion) over the icon
2. blink the icon when it is about to expire

Do you think the second would be insufficient?
