The following has not been tested with the 'rt' CLI tool.

You could extend RT::Ticket to create a function called
time_until_started, then create a ColumnMap for that new function.

I've written something similar to this (for 3.8) where I wanted to get
the "previous owner" of a ticket and be able to use that as a column
in searches. Attached is the code. I'm not sure if there are changes
necessary for 4.0 or 4.2.

There are 3 important files:
