Please do not interpret it that way at all. I was pointing to one of the
requirements that Hongal put forward. Specifically to a schedule that starts
at a specified time and runs for a fixed length of length of time.  Hongel
put forward others that are important as well.

I would like to be able to say start at a time and run for 90 mins. Or Under
condition A run for 1 hour.  I understand these are two different requests.

In the types of schedule that I have described which are a subset of those
Hongal proposes, I do not need an end time since that is implicit in
duration.  My subset should not be interpreted as suggesting Hongals other
points are not important, only that I wanted to emphasize issues of
particular interest to me.
