I don't understand why time() should return a numeric value at all.

Some of us like to use epoch time, as an integer, to create unique file names which sort 
"right" in a shell or GUI.

You can use "{time - $epoch}" or "{<%d>}" or "{int time}". (That last one is not "{+time}", because that would be a floating-point value, not an integer).
