Hm, not being quite so tired as when I wrote this, I'm now awake enough to
ask whether there's any natlang with any sort of "temporal cases"? It might
be just me doing to much relativity right now, but temporal relationships
don't seem too unlike spatial ones (which of course are frequently expressed
by case).
