I have no stake in this proposal, except for:

Whatever you do, don't touch the literals! I specify NSTimeIntervals of 0.1, 0.2, 0.25 etc all over the place, and I couldn't care less if my animations are one femtosecond off.

Don't pollute everyone's apps with tildes just because there's a niche that needs to care about precision loss.
