One of my cameras likes to set the exposure to numbers like
1/632 sec and 1/339 sec. Since these are NOT anything close to powers
of two, why not just admit that representing them as fractions is a
silly hold over from the mechanical camera days. I'm just saying to
do the math and say that the times are 0.001582 sec and 0.002950 sec.

Oh, now I can totally see the value of your system. 0.002950 is MUCH easier to understand.
