By the way, I removed ("deferred") the time.highres() function from the 
PEP, and I try to avoid the term "steady" because no OS clock respect 
the definition of "steady" (especially in corner cases as system 
suspend/resume). So which flags do you want to support? (only "monotonic"?)

Basically, get_clock("monotonic") should give time.monotonic() whereas 
get_clock() gives time.time()?
