if timestamps repeat then it will not be possible to seek in the file
by timestamp (to all positions) and i suspect also not by byte position.
How would one seek then ?
or do i misunderstand ?

Is it difficult to adjust the timestamps of discarded packets to avoid
timestamp discontinuities ? (for the cases where this is possible of
the timestamps for discarded packets i would assume are meaningless in
the new semenatics but they matter for the old semantics
again, please correct me if iam wrong

If you drop bombs on a foreign country and kill a hundred thousand
innocent people, expect your government to call the consequence
"unprovoked inhuman terrorist attacks" and use it to justify dropping
more bombs and killing more people. The technology changed, the idea is old.
