  It's easier to hack the detail file reader to use Event-Timestamp,
instead of the artificial "Timestamp" field.

  i.e. the time when the "event" happened is (a) Event-Timestamp, or (b)
if that doesn't exist, the time when the packet was written to the
detail file.

  The Acct-Delay-Time is the different between now and the time from above.
