[Python-Dev] PEP 418 is too divisive and confusing and should be postponed

I am fine with the PEP as it is now (2012-04-04 15:34 GMT).

A question:

Since the only monotonic clock that can be adjusted by NTP is Linux'
CLOCK_MONOTONIC, if we avoid it, then time.monotonic() would always
give a clock that isn't adjusted by NTP. That would however mean we
wouldn't support monotonic clocks on systems that run a Linux that is
older than mid-2008. Is this generally seen as a problem?
