An xtime object holds the elapsed time since the epoch. You can't get that
information from timeGetTime or QueryPerformanceCounter. There's nothing
wrong with using GetSystemTimeAsFileTime; you just have to allow for
jitter, which is pretty much unavoidable regardless of where you get your
time information from.
