while specific compilers can provide a chrono library it is not sure that the library works without some C++0x laguage feature. I have to work with compiler versions that do not supporting C++0x features. I would prefer to use on these compilers a C++98 adaptation of the standard chrono library than nothing.
If you don't mind I'd like to take it and request a formal review as the library has a fixed interface and a quite stable implementation.
