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.
