FWIW, I agree with Apollon. >= is better than > as the resolution of the
timestamp can be coarced. I am also worried Clojure may not be the only
one using this. For example, Python may use the same thing for pyc (just
checked, it doesn't, it uses not(>=)). We don't ship pyc in packages,
but there may be other things like that.
Make sure comments and code agree.
