(Timestamps are a bit far apart because I was distracted by phone call
while doing this).

Here's a thing ... if you're using a zshaddhistory hook to store lines
to the history with "print -s" or "print -S", the start time of the
command is lost and consequently so is the elapsed time; print forces
the start and end times of the entry it writes to both be the time of
the call to print.

There may be a similar issue with HIST_IGNORE_ALL_DUPS in that the times
for the oldest duplicate are kept, whereas HIST_EXPIRE_DUPS_FIRST keeps
those of the most recent duplicate.
