It would be great if it could be a simple function, however it is going to
be difficult to produce something cross-platform and meaningful with a
single function. (I know Anatol has written portable code, I haven't looked
at it but I assume it's wrapping the various structs used by i.e.
performance counters, hrtime, etc.)
I don't think we can get away from having an object-based implementation to
wrap those internal structs, but I do think this is a useful addition
regardless of how it's presented.
