We had actually been looking at making extensive use of the "Time Worked"
field as well.  We did encounter this very problem.

One thought I had was that the interface could be changed to make updating
a bit easier.  The user who wanted to increase the time worked by N could
type in "+ N" or "Add N".  Seems like a bit of a hack but might be useful.

Would this seem useful to others?  Would it be worth doing a patch for it,
or would it work better as a custom site modification?
