Wow - and time is almost gone.  Sorry this got no response until today,
I'm not sure the powers that be really care for this change to go in until
2.0 at this point (it's an eliminated ctime and added crtime & intime
member of a transparent structure that's user-allocated.)

Would be really nice to see one more bit of feedback before I commit
such a change - amazes me we are the only two folks considering
this issue.  Sander Striker on 4/27/03 and Brian Pane the day after
pondered this a while, but apparently we are the only two with any
real concern about the ambiguity.  Anyone else care to chime in?
