That's fine with me, assuming documentation is updated as needed.
The other timing related issue that I've procrastinated about for years is
boost/progress.hpp. Class progress_timer suffers from two problems:
1) Inconsistent results depending on operating system.
2) Doesn't always give enough information for its intended use - timing
Problem (1) will be fixed by your changes to timer, IIUC.
As we speak I'm working on a solution to (2). The intent is to leave
progress_timer as is, since it does meet some needs, and since there is some
small amount of existing code that depends on its output format, and add a
new header, perhaps called process_times.hpp.
It will contain functions and/or classes that reports process wall-clock
time, kernel-time, and user-time, using Windows GetProcessTimes and POSIX
