Bug#645594: This is not a bug, it's a feature!

Package: flite
Followup-For: Bug #645594

When should we say "exactly"?

Is 4m30'30" "exactly half past four"?
No, it isn't, because it's 30 second later...

But if you ignore seconds, then you can say "exactly".

What about 30 seconds earlier?
4m29'30" is as far from "exactly" as 4m30'30" is.

That's why the program correctly pronounce the same sentence in both
cases: when it is less then one minute before or less than one minute
after the "exact" timing.

I hope that the original behaviour will not be changed.
