Thanks Michael. As an example of a way that this modification could help in
verification on Wikisource (as seen, for example
http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Babes_in_the_Wood), I've put together a page
which features a silent film http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Daydreams. The time
location seen on the left could link to the portion which is defined by the
start and end times, and allow for Wikisource to validate either text which
appears on screen or for the transcription of the audio.
