 * Simple stopwatch mechanism for determining the amount of wall-clock time and
 * CPU time (user + system) that has elapsed.  It is not fancy.  It is either
 * running or it is not.  If you want coherent cpu and real time values, then
 * you had better stop it first.  It does not keep counting when stopped,
 * although one could add a resumeRetroactive or something to accomplish that.
