For accurate timing, time.clock()
is recommended, I believe:
Return the current CPU time as a floating point number expressed in seconds.
The precision, and in fact the very definition of the meaning of ``CPU time'',
depends on that of the C function of the same name, but in any case, this
is the function to use for benchmarking Python or timing algorithms.
Return the time as a floating point number expressed in seconds since the epoch,
in UTC. Note that even though the time is always returned as a floating point number,
not all systems provide time with a better precision than 1 second.
