#1962: Doesn't measure wall clock time

 <timer.hpp> measures whatever time std::clock measures. Unfortunately,
 this varies from system to system.

 The fix is to retire <timer.hpp>, and replace it with a much better set of
 facilities based on C++0x <chrono>.

 I've been working on these facilities in

 Currently, the header is <boost/chrono/timer.hpp>. It supplies:

 * process_clock: capturing real, user-CPU, and system-CPU clocks.
 * process_timer: capturing elapsed real, user-CPU, and system-CPU times.
 * run_timer: convenient reporting of process_timer results.

 I'm probably going to move these to a new Boost.Timer library.
