Re: [dev] [farbfeld] version 1 release

I know the proposal is "modest", but the timing can be represented in file names that are microseconds from start, with an optional dash followed by the microsecond to jump to (for looping).

The main issue with this is that all file names would need to be read to project the effective time with loops considered, which I think with tar would require scanning the whole archive. In that case, a meta file would be better.
