I thought about this now. There's some merit to it, after all you are very
right that instances and durations are separate things and for a moment I
considered that yours might be a more logical way out then mine but in a way
ChucK derives a lot of power from using these loosely.

now - (now % T) => now;

...like in the OTF examples is a good example of that, here "now" acts very
much like the duration since the VM's birth and not like a instant. Taking a
modulo of a instant makes no sense at all while taking one of a duration

I'm a bit lost here now (no pun intended but it's funny) perhaps Ge will
have some insights to share about the underlying plan.
