Sure, I have no problem putting in a Windows version of this. Technically
I've considered this feature 'experimental' in that I hadn't found time, nor
personal need to port it to Windows. It works fine on all platforms that define:


which does include some windows compilers. I notice that the test code now
actually gets defaulted to pass if a platform doesn't support this which is
odd b/c I know at least one Windows vendor that fixed their get time of day
implementation when I first put this in and the test was failing. Anyway,
that should be changed to fail if it is unavailable.
