Rough implementation suggestion:
-datasources need to export a TIME field.  The data sources need to determine how to do this, though the default, added to the parent class, might be to allow the user to define ( in the datasource's configure dialog) a field, and offset, and a slope to use to generate time.

-RVectors need to learn how to store their starting and offsets in time, rather than frame.  They will use the TIME field to interpret them.  It has to happen in RVector, in case sample rates change or there are data dropouts, etc.

-The vector range widget and the command line need to learn to parse a variety of time formats.

-This can then simplify what is being done with piolib's time.

I think that the difference between this and the current implimentation for PIOlib is that the RVectors will now take care of time interpolation, etc, not the widgets.

I think that this gives all of the desired behavior.
