[tlocoh-info] Calculating temporally overlapping hulls with s=0, can it be done?

Hi all,

I would like to calculate hull metrics for pairs of temporally overlapping hulls of two individuals (using `lhs.to.add` from the `tlocoh.dev` package). However, I have used s=0 for both individuals (after following the cross-validation methods set out by Dougherty et al. (2017)<https://movementecologyjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40462-017-0110-4>), and thus the hulls were constructed from the closest points in space only. Do hulls still have times associated with them even if they are formed with s = 0?

Using the `lhs.to.add` and `lhs.to.stats` functions I do technically get a result (i.e., there are no errors), but I am wondering if this is theoretically sound?

Thank you in advance for any help/advice you can provide.
