My take is that what we have now is fine for 1.0.  Perfect?  No.  So be
it.  It works.

Any changes to the time code can be in the next major release.  This will
give us enough time to appropriately discuss what should go in there.

IIRC, there was also an explicit veto on any change to the time code
because it could break source and/or binary compatibility.  Therefore, if
that veto still stands, we have to do any changes to the time code *after*
1.0 not before.  And, for lots of other reasons, I tend to agree to do it
after 1.0.

Count me as post-1.0 for any time fixes.  -- justin
