Nope. If you want high resolution you probably want

Using itimer python extensions, and registering reactor.wakeUp() as the
signal handler for SIGALARM can also help.

Also note the kqueue python extension is supposedly badly designed, and
needs a rewrite.

I've seen better than 1sec resolution on linux - 20ms seems to be limit
there too without using something like LoopingCall.
