It's easy enough to swap timespan for timestamp in tick.q, but I wascurious why timespan is the default.For rdb queries and other tick.q subscribers, I find that I often wantto compare the relative values of two timespans, but can't because thedate isn't recorded until saving down to the hdb.Isn't using the timestamp type the obvious solution here? I get thatthe date component of timestamp would be redundant in the hdb, but whatother solution is there for real-time data?Thanks,Josh

Like I said, it's trivial to alter, but was just curious why timespan is = the default.
