Siegfried stated on IRC yesterday that he was in favor of the
milliesecond resolution using an INTEGER column (ie. what we have now).
I think this means that we have rough consensus..?
As for use cases with sub-second resolution think of messaging (IRC,
IM). If I continuously say "spam" on IRC I can easily send you 3-4
messages/s. Basically any situation where a user can flood some app with
events with repeated button clicks. Alternate things include events
generated by external sources where network latency or other factors may
tend to "cluster" events send to you.
Use timestamps with milliseconds granularity (was: use REAL)

Seconds are not fine-grained enough to differentiate events, so we should store
the timestamps as floating-point numbers.
