could you create a ticket for (3). I don't think this is too disruptive.

For (2), I will rephrase your least steppable unit as follows. The semantics
associated to++,-- is to interpret the unit as the duration of the

Atime_point tp;


will be equivalent to

  tp += Atime_point::duration(1);

Howard, do you think that there is a chance this semantics could be accepted
for TR2?
