That is your opinion (and apparently that of the other technocrats), but
I totally disagree. I want mean solar time, but I want it to be a real
number with all the standard mathematical properties of a real number.

Hence the time scale which I am building for my own personal use (and to
be freely shared with any and all comrades who choose to join) in
preparation for the day when the ITU pulls the rug from under us has
rubber seconds.

Goddess Bless,
