hmm, strange design IMHO, and it's significantly incompatible to good old unix "at/atd" :-(
new concepts should use new names...

and since gps-atd only allows absoulte time in seconds as "timepec", what might be
a good reason for keeping entries active which already have been processed once ?!

do you have any pointers for design docs etc of gpe-atd ?
(on I alwas run into "Attic" looking for atd :-(
