The long-term question for me is if there is a need to synchronise the

work, it's just good to know user requirements whenever further design
decisions [on the time subsystem] have to be made.

Our real-time simulation requires synchronization with an external time base.  
The external timing source generates a one-pulse-per-second signal that is 
connected to an interrupt line on the real-time PC.  We use this  one-PPS 
interrupt to calibrate the task execution period and remove any accumulated 
clock skew to keep our simulation outputs in-sync with other parts of the 

I am satisfied with the current implementation, but thought I would respond, 
since you were asking for input.  I hadn't thought about the possibility of 
some sort of built-in timebase synchronization functionality, but I imagine 
this sort of thing is fairly common, and it may prove useful to include it in
