This is what I mentioned in the teleconf. As it is, '0.' would not be a  
valid production of npttime but it is a valid production of npt-sec from  
RTSP [1]. The same is true of '00:00:00.'. The difference is in digits  
after the decimal point.

I would suggest simply importing npt-sec and npt-hhmmss from RFC2326,  
dropping the 's' completely for simplicity. Since it isn't needed to  
disambiguate and any existing software should tolerate omitting the s,  
removing it shouldn't be a problem, right?
