Good idea. I agree, additional keys are cleaner than cons cells.

I've replaced the cons cells with additional plist properties, as you
suggested. The resulting customization ui still isn't wonderful in my
opinion. But it does the job, and I'm not sure how much scope there is
for improving it further. If you see a way, by all means feel free to
make the changes yourself. I really don't mind what format you go with
for org-time-clocksum-format, as long as it supports the new formatting
features implemented in the patch.

Ooops. Fixed in the attached version.
