Funnily enough even though perhaps this is indeed trivial (but has cost 
me a lot of time because of discrepancies in the Windows vs Linux clock)

bikeshedding refers to cosmetics. Yet Linux people constantly have to 
deal with trivial issues, such as whether I write "!-d" or "! -d" in 
Apache. Just an example.

Or the fact that awk requires \\1 but sed requires \1.

Or grep can use \b but in awk you need \\<, and so on and so on.

What clock to keep is much more fundamental, but what I see is that most 
of our time is spent on trivialities.

If you never want to debate anything, you will keep nitpicking. But 
anyway.

Sorry for the verbosity.
