I think you are over-engineering a complicated solution to a simple
problem.  If you want to add functionality to time module, add a
function with a new name that would mimic appropriate POSIX API and
return a (named) tuple of integers where C function would populate a
struct.  If you write a new high resolution time module - import
decimal at the top of the module and make all your clocks return
seconds as Decimal objects.
