None of the many I tried exported (or in some cases, found) it,

        Tails export    (had "duration" in exported code, but with no
        AUM Parser

On further testing, X2V (both when used directly, and when used via
Operator) finds and exports it.

Optimus' XML facility is currently giving an error.
