<p>NACK, as this is a public API function, this can be a potential foot gun. Even though currently it is only used to determine the offset for the ABR lifetimes (and thus <code>evtimer_now_min()</code> is always used against another <code>evtimer_now_min()</code>), one might get the idea that using this safely against a value generated with <code>evtimer_now_msec()</code> might be a good idea (which, since the values could come from different clocks isn't at all).</p>

<p>Ah true, I completely forgot that the base timer is most of the time not the same..., so I agree with the footgun point.</p>
