    Description

      Right now Streams API unversally represents time as ms-since-unix-epoch.

      There's nothing wrong, per se, with this, but Duration is more ergonomic for an API.

      What we don't want is to present a heterogeneous API, so we need to make sure the whole Streams API is in terms of Duration.

       

      Implementation note: Durations potentially worsen memory pressure and gc performance, so internally, we will still use longMs as the representation.
