Hi DIlwyn,

To be honest, I do not remember writing either of those, and I have no idea
what they do (although "clock" sounds pretty obvious...).

In principle, I have no objection to anything I wrote being made available,
however I would like to have a look at them first to do a bit of QA before
unleashing them on the public.
