Indeed, though if it's with the tacit permission of the Administrator,
I'm not going to demand it be stopped.  Maybe I'll propose something
next nweek that makes the timer script official by allowing the
Administrator to delegate eir authority with respect to The Clock.

My revised proposal is actually pretty compatible now with the
Monopoly/Legal proposals, and it should make sense to vote for both.
Should I get rid of the word 'explicitly' in the text so that The
Clock can get a loophole by way of declaring its automatic actions?
"Explicitly" and "Expressly" are a couple words I use a bit too much,
perhaps (as well as "perhaps" in discussion (as well as parenthesized
asides (somebody stop me!)))
