Just for the sake of argument... how about the time it takes runners to
finish a marathon? Sure you could use seconds as an integer field, but
time without date make sense...

I agree that "4pm" is kind of pointless, but "16 hours" can be handy.

If only to save me from having to convert from seconds to hh:mm:ss and
back, etc...

So we have to differentiate between
- "Time" which means Point of Time in a specific day, and
- "Duration" which means the difference between two Points in Time

Is there a "Duration" gem for RoR ?
