Comment (by markk):

 I'm going to go 'on record' and state that I don't think this patch should
 be committed.

 Firstly, I personally find it counterintuitive to display a different
 program duration (or position) from the actual, known value. The potential
 for confusion is huge.

 Secondly, any confusion can only be mitigated by themers competently using
 the extra information available. Given that this is only likely to be a
 niche feature, I can see few themes actually doing that.

 Finally, it adds a level of complexity to the playback code that we could
 really do without. We are trying to make this code simpler and more
 understandable and the 'cost' here does not outweigh the 'benefit' in my
