Compare recordings made on different platforms for differences


I've just discovered Chronon, and it looks like a wonderful product. I'm currently tracking down minute double precision floating point differences between Java programs on Windows and Linux, where for instance, the result of a Math.cos() call is slightly different on the two platforms. Chronon in its normal use will speed up tracking down these differences, but it occurred to me: maybe it's possible to compare a recording made on Windows with a recording of the same program run on Linux. If the Chronon "time" is calculated in a way that would stay the same across different runs (using all the same inputs) on different platforms, then maybe the values of each variable that's recorded could be compared, and if they're not the same, well that's what I'm looking for!
