I used to show buffer-display-time in the customized buffer list.
After that change buffer-display-time displayed weird times,
so I had to replace buffer-display-time with visited-file-modtime
instead.  But I think this issue has a minuscule importance,
so unless somebody wants to add a new attribute inactive-time,
it was ok to close this.
