But messages don't have a timestamp. You can sort of pretend that they do, 
but it really comes from a single global variable. You can't find many 
classes that actually store the timestamp of their message ([pipe] 
[delay]...) and when they do, you can never use any other class to find 
out what the original time of a message was, because that's just not 
passed around.
