From memory, I seem to recall that this had something to do with the
ambiguous understanding of what 2d really meant i.e. 48 hours, 16 hours
(assuming 8 hour work day).

I have no opinion regarding which is better, but I don't use taskjuggler
any more (due to other 'limitations' with the export/configuration which
I just cannot recall now - it was many years ago).
