Yeah, there seemed to be general agreement on just appending a more human
readable format to the existing printout.

I think this is the approach to go with as a starting point, since it
largely avoids both localization and units-naming concerns.  If someone
feels the desire to build a customizable output format, that can be dealt
with as a separate patch on top of this one ... but I really question that
it'd ever be worth the trouble.

So for clarity's sake: first suitable format among these:

Time: 59.999 ms
Time: 121.999 ms (2:01.999)
Time: 10921.999 ms (3:02:01.999)
Time: 356521.999 ms (4 3:02:01.999)

In an NLS-enabled build, the translator would be able to fool with the
punctuation, though I dunno whether any translators would need to.
