Basically, sure. I needed the time based access fast, so I was very 
happy that I just had to change a few lines to implement it. Enabling 
the count-down in a way you describe it would mean more changes to the 
way accounts are handled, and how their information are stored. At the 
moment, it's all absolute: "Let the user X access until thenandthen". 
You mean a relative solution.

Yeah, I think that's a nice feature. Unfortunately I do not have the 
time to go deeper into the built in user manager at the moment. Until 
somebody else wants to change it, it has to wait.
