Rousseau Has a Connection to Time-travel?

From an interview Lostpedia did with David Fury who was a writer on season 1.
Lostpedia: Was time-travel ever mentioned while you worked on “Lost”? Do you know how long the idea has existed?
There was an exchange (pitched by J.J. when he and I broke the story) in an early draft of “Solitary” when Rousseau tells Sayid she had been part of a research team. Sayid asks her what they were researching. She replies: “Time.” The network saw that draft and asked us to remove the line. They were very timid about anything that smacked of Sci-Fi during the first season. I can only assume they’ve come around.
