That's not a valid solution.  Even apps that need only
1-second resolution end up having to work with apr_time_t
because APR uses it for things like file stat times and
apr_rfc822_date().  Not that those parts of APR have any
real need for microsecond resolution, either--but they
force the app to use microseconds anyay.
