This is interesting but unfortunately it'd mean that the whole thread runs
on one core, which very likely most programmer won't be happy with.... and
running the QPC timer in a thread of his own just looks overkill to me.

Maybe a mid solution would be to provide some macro allowing the user to
make the lib automatically use SetThreadAffinityMask... but I think that
simply mentionning the issue in the documentation is better.

Is there really that much of a need for a QPC based timer ? In my current
state of mind I really provide it as an alternative to the microsec_timer
for those who specifically need it, but microsec_timer is portable and
offers the same resolution than QPC...
