Better Chandler doc references to Trellis would still be nice.  From
the Chandler docs I get a vague idea that Trellis is being used to
keep various bits of data up-to-date, and I *think* the 'current time'
is treated as a trellis variable as well, but a "big picture" overview
could be helpful.  Is there a regular second-by-second tick which is
being propagated through Trellis to trigger events, or what?
