Would it be possible for you to change the code a little, so that it outputs
milliseconds here?

I would rather it belong to a separate library, highly compatible with the
relational one.

Right, but the relative impact of these hand-coded solutions maybe too high,
so we may not really be comparing the libraries.

At this point the RTL solution is coded completely as a relational
expression (although rather complex), a single relational view. I also
might be able to further optimize it inside the relational boundaries.

Please note also that I had to somewhat decrease the performance in exchange
to fast re-runs after the update, so, depending on the context (update and
re-run pattern, etc.), RTL solution might even now be much more efficient
than it looks.
