NAK --- if you're trying to do arithmetic on the numbers, converting
them to hh:mm:ss notation isn't the best first step.  I think a separate
setting somewhere to select the format would be good.  Please *don't*
do "\timing interval" as that confuses the on/off state with the
formatting selection.  Maybe a \pset option?

Also, might I suggest that leading zeroes in such a format are not
helpful?  That is, I'd want to see "1:02.345" not "00:01:02.345".
