Depends on what data unit you use for an article, but if an article
becomes a struct that lives through the lifetime of the article inside
innd, which I think is the case currently and which makes sense as a basic
architecture, you can add a set of struct timevals (or some reduced form
thereof) to the article.

That would mean more calls to gettimeofday than we have currently, though.
