Bill, what you describe as robust wouldn't even have been considered so back in 1998. "Robust" would be the ability to re-write or reassign TC for any source material, monitor and match timecode across tracks or synced items, monitor and match timecode at different frame rates. I should be able to, using time code, replace a temp source with a master with matching code in any given timeline. I should be able to monitor in and outs of any given clip or a whole group of clips at the same time. I should have sync markers that demonstrate the number of frames paired or locked items are out of sync, and in what direction. I should have indicators that show sync or lack-there-of across all layers/tracks/or what-you-will. I should be able to generate an EDL, and of course, I should be able to read one and attach material to it. That's robust.

I agree with you that FCP X has more timecode support that a hobbyist might need, but to call it robust is absurd.
