Not true. The (non-existent) "office suite" would contain stuff for
office clerks, like word processing and such. I rarely use such

Time tracking has much broader use. It's useful for any professional:

  * report your manager/customers how you spent your time
  * prevent burn-out syndrome
  * optimize how you spend your time

IMHO Hamster belongs to the same category of applications as this typing
break feature of GNOME Control Center, or the GNOME Calculator. So if
those applications are justified for inclusion, than even more the
inclusion of any kind of time tracking application is justified.
