Cheeky was meant in the lightest possible way. I meant no offence to Ned.
Someone, somewhere will require time and time support where no two events
can occur at the same time. I am at least one such person.
If we keep the monotonicity we establish a nice elegant standard that two
sequential exections of time now MUST occur at different times becuase
they were processed sequentially.
But I appreciate others find it an unneccessary extension.
I would argue that the Chonology package introduces other significant
benefits over and above mere ANSI compatibility which have argued for its
Perhaps just the (psuedo) nano-second precision and associated strict
monotonicy should be a SqueapMap extension.
In that case the updates are fine and I will register my wee
accurateDateAndTimeNow-brp changeset on SM.
