 | Hello,
 | Quick questions to make it clear:
 | 1. Just to be sure. Is the extraction of these constants from clock_subr.h a good idea?
 I don't know; historically I've seen them defined in many places with
 different names. I guess it is an improvement to put them all in one place.
 | 2. After changing the macro names to longer forms. Is it a good idea to add compatibility defines in clock_subr.h? This way:
 I don't see why. It is not an API.
 | 3. Can I assume that with going back for the multiplication convention a user knows seconds per day (to be honest I never remembered it before :-) ). In other words, is the anti-16-bit-int campaign desired? Actually I believe that a good compiler will catch overflow immediately (clang, gcc).
 I personally would not worry about it. If you are using 16 bits for seconds,
 you should know you are going to get into trouble quickly :-)
