My main suggestion there would be that the functions that deal with
tai[n]_t structures not containing genuine TAI values will probably
cause more confusion than they're worth, and don't need to be exposed
in the documented API. Bury them with an extra ska_ prefix to mark
them for internal use only. Then I want to say that
tai[n]_from_{timespec,timeval,time_t} (and the reverse) would be
available for the value-adjusting conversion functions, but you
probably shouldn't reuse the same name for a different function,
especially when the argument types are the same, on the off chance
that anyone is actually using it and may not notice the change.
