well, in evil, i compute the # of seconds since 1st january 1970, then i 
tranformat that to get something similar to gettimeofday, then 
ecore_time_get() re-tranform again what i got to obtain the number of 
seconds. That's why i say "heavy".

I wanted to avoid to add windows code, but maybe i should actually add it 
in ecore, t avoid extra computations
