So you came up with perhaps the single example that exists in the
whole world where the issues I mentioned _might_ not matter, and even
that only under some assumptions.  A feature that aspires to be
generally useful cannot possibly depend on such problematic

times doesn't reinforce the learned pattern.  You need many similar,
but different code samples, and most probably in different languages.
