I was going to put this simple code in time.py when I realized that time was a C module.

The main point, as Antoine points out, is that time.clock() means two seriously different things on the two main platforms, and time.clock() is potentially inadequate on one of them.

I put in the patch since it was quick to do, but I'll provoke a discussion on python-ideas for now.
