Allow entry of data points as times in hours:minutes:seconds
For goals like how long your commute is or whatnot.
X:YY is now syntactic sugar for X+YY/60, and similarly for X:YY:ZZ. decimals not currently allowed together with colons.

Decimals work now too. For example, if you enter 19:59:59.999 will be recorded as 19.9999997222222

Yep, I want to try to wake up earlier, so I want to be able to have a goal of "wake up at 8:00 by Jan 1". Which might get complicated (I haven't actually thought about/tried it) but I think it would be best as a time trial? I might try it with just "minutes after 8:00", although that's certainly not optimal.

Also useful for time of day goals, e.g.
- time I get to bed
- time I wake up
Another thought: fitness goals like "run a 10 minute mile by Jan 1", although this might be just minutes:seconds.
Also useful for goals like "sleep at least 8 hours every night"?
