Or at least it wasn't what I was asking about.

What happens now, what happens given the proposal, if the user does not 
enter a transaction time? WHAT time gets entered? (what value is used 
for the time component and if not a constant value, upon what does it 

My question is related to the "stability" of sort operations (a sort is 
"stable" if/f when a set of records is sorted by field X, the relative 
order of records which have the same value in field X is the same after 
the sort as before).
