We've had some spirited discussions of this subject in the past.  
You might browse thru the archives to get a feel for where most of 
us are at on the issue.  We have about a handful of views 
represented on this list, ranging from the traditional "consecutive" 
view to some fairly radical ones (probably a tossup between Rolf's 
and my own).
