I'd note that there are a bunch of other places where twisted.web[2] 
use the current time, so, it's probably not particularly worth it to 
put in a special hack to not call time.time in log, while doing nothing 
about all the other uses of time.time. You could use the response Date 
header as the log time, if you like.
