implementation of PEP0418 with the "Choosing the clock from a list of constraints" get_clock() and get_clocks() functions
PEP 418 (https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0418/) generated much discussion.
Most particpants wanted a call to get a high resolution monotonic clock, which many platforms offer, and much of the discussion surrounded what guarrentees Python should offer for the clock it returned.
I was of the opinion that:
This cs.clockutils package implements get_clock() and get_clocks() and provides example implementations of the “policy” calls such as monotonic().
