OK, I'm not a mathematics major, but aren't "scalar" and "real number"
two different terms for the same thing?  I admit to not knowing whether
complex numbers also qualify as scalars or not, but if they do, then it
seems to me that real number would be a better term: complex numbers are
not intended here.

The rest of the discussion will be moved to the new Mean Solar Time Users
mailing list shortly.
