Keep in mind, although time tracking is interesting data (even as
an open source effort), while you have a community project we need
to recognize it's only a rough approximation.  Using this as any
sort of bookkeeping feature for corporate analysis would be abusing
the process.

So I agree(d) with turning on the feature, understanding what parts
of the code demand the most attention (or possibly also the most
audit-from-behind based on the amount of effort expended in certain
areas of the code).  But I'd disagree if this was expected to be
100% spot-on with the specific time used, and would caution that
this feature is essentially opt-in/voluntary and probably variable
when it comes to multi-day review of a bug.
