Why this won't work?
from time import monotonic as _time
from time import time as _time
OR (if we decide to fail on first call, instead of ImportError)
_time = time
_time = time.monotonic
And then just use '_time' in your code? What's the deal with the
I really like how it currently works with epoll, for instance. It either
exists in the 'select' module, or not, if the host OS doesn't support it.
I think it should be the same for 'time.monotonic'.
