I really don't think this helps clarity any, sorry.  :-}  I also don't
mind replying to messages on the list with:

"This topic has been discussed before, please see the archives for Jun
2000, and search for interval_time."

I really think we are fine the way things are now.  If we want room to
grow into the future, I think we can just change the def of
ap_interval_time_t.  All this requires is a recompile to move from 23 ->
64 bit values.
