yup, that was the core of my last reply... (an option to override the
elapsed time and switch to a timestamp system).

Arjen's version (elapsed time) is very nice for working on 1 component,
while the timestamp would help more in cross components (program
interaction). possibly using the new "-T" to switch to the timestamp mode...
