  You are absolutely right, this function is supposed to provide sub-second
precision. For SystemTime.h:

    // Return the current system time in seconds, using the classic POSIX
epoch of January 1, 1970.
    // Like time(0) from <time.h>, except with a wider range of values and
higher precision.

  gettimeofday() doesn't really provide a much wider range of values, but
that doesn't seem critical for the time being :-)

  It will certainly be appreciated. Thank you!
