// Time represents an absolute point in time, internally represented as
// microseconds (s/1,000,000) since a platform-dependent epoch.  Each
// platform's epoch, along with other system-dependent clock interface
// routines, is defined in time_PLATFORM.cc.
// TimeDelta represents a duration of time, internally represented in
// microseconds.
// TimeTicks represents an abstract time that is always incrementing for use
// in measuring time durations. It is internally represented in microseconds.
// It can not be converted to a human-readable time, but is guaranteed not to
// decrease (if the user changes the computer clock, Time::Now() may actually
// decrease or jump).
// These classes are represented as only a 64-bit value, so they can be
// efficiently passed by value.
