Are we interested in supporting low resolution system clocks?

Old old systems just bumped the time in big steps on a timer interrupt.
Most modern OSes use something like the Intel TSC for timekeeping so the
clock ticks in nanosecond scale steps.
ntpd has a lot of ugly code to fuzz the clock. I don't really understand
that area. I think it makes sense if the clock has big ticks. Do we want to
support those systems? If not, I think we can clean up a lot of tiny code
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
