This is a follow on probably in the same code section as:
[ 779784 ] Keeps updating finished auctions

As a Request for Enhancement, would it be possible (1)
to RETAIN for an interval of N days (configurable), and
(2) not update ended auctions for more than 1/2 hour
after it ends (this interval because sometimes clock
skew causes the last bid to not be picked up)

As with most, I let it run unattended, and if I did not
'Watch an item" if a bid closes above my snipe, I lose
track of it. Retaining ended auctions for N days
would permit checking it daily or whatever, and seeing
where an item closed.

    I believe this is a reasonable idea.
