APR is called the Apache Portable Runtime. it's not called the Apache Httpd
Portable Runtime. However, if i understand the argument correctly, this
debate centers around depth of precision of this function. (and i may have
this completely backwards, apologies if i do).

If this is the case, why not provide both: have an apr_utime_t and
apr_time_t. One for precise time calculations (usecs) and then one for less
precise but faster calculations.

 my 2 proverbials.
