newRPL has found its HMS commands implementation.

Why won't the /150 and /1.5 steps cause rounding problems?
3 is not a factor of the base (10).

Sorry, I didn't mean rounding problems. I don't even know why I called it "rounding" but I was thinking of "carry propagation" actually. I meant the rounding issues like 0.5960, where you need to "round" the seconds (though it's not rounding what you are doing).
I meant it doesn't need any manual carry propagation, the formula takes care of everything, even if the input is invalid. It's a really good implementation.
