** In practive, the resolution of 1 nanosecond **

** no need for resolution better than 1 nanosecond in practive in the
Python standard library.**

practice vs practice

If I understood you correctly on Python-ideas (here just for the

where precision is an enumeration for: 'seconds', 'milliseconds'
'microseconds'... (or 's', 'ms', 'us', 'ns', ...)
