I'm pretty the "smooth time, ms-jumpy phase and pseudorange" RINEX works
OK in Bernese, though perhaps some expert could comment on whether certain
epochs bordering the ms-reset points get special treatment (perhaps even

No idea about Gamit.  Bob K., Tom H.?

... this being the recent finding from your earlier thread to the teqc list
(questioning whether `teqc +smtt` was doing the right thing when these were
showing up in 5700 data).  My question to either you or Jeff: _why_ is it
a good idea to run this type of RINEX through clockprep?  (i.e. `teqc +smtt`
type RINEX where epoch should nominally be on the second, but for whatever
reason the receiver occasionally samples +/-1 ms off the nominal epoch).
I guess I'm wondering if there is something I should be adding to teqc that
clockprep does in this case.
