It may be a bit late, but in my opinion you might consider changing the
package name for future versions. Time is fundamental, ubiquitous,
and yet quite complex. There are innumerable ways in which the time
package is likely to be extended. Personally, I almost never use syb.
Data instances are probably the last thing I would expect to find in
a package called "time-extras". So to me this seems like a rather
peculiar way to use up such a generic name.
