Stamps, versions, ordering

What you're looking for is predecessor/successor/unrelated in the context

   (Much like relativistic events outside each other's light cone, and you can
    never trust time stamps.)

   exactly that?

The tree ordering currently appears at a higher level.  It also will
only appear for stamps actually recorded in a historical trace.  I was
referring to something more like a timeline.  For any two Stamps
generated by a particular Bert, there is always an ordering of those
