Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look at it for a future version.

The maximum precision in TIMEFORMAT has since bash 2.0 (1997) been "values of p greater than 3 are changed to 3".

Now that fast CPUs can return pipelines in milliseconds or faster, could we allow users to choose greater precision values?
