By calculating the time for midnight in the unix standard
"seconds since epoch" time.  There are several utilities who can do
this and AFAIK there is a perl module.  I would use gnu date :

   [alex at home /usr/alex]$ date -d 00:00 +%s

It would be "VRULE:`/bin/date -d 00:00 +%s`#FF0000:midnight"

I'm not sure about this one...  perhaps alt-autoscale will do something
like this but I'm rather pessimistic...
