It's also important to be backwards compatible.
I notice that for Linux nowadays nobody does take care about this. If
application A doesn't do what it should do and does for the last years,
simply switch to application B and don't use all the important private
data of the last years any more or don't expect your scripts that set up
special conditions for some needs by e.g. stopping a service, to work
So what ever should be needed to temporarily enable hr timer usage
today, IMO it's important that it does work for your machine using alpha
software and for your 4 years old stable DAW.
