[Twisted-Python] time

I noticed that the convention in Twisted is to measure
time with python.runtime.seconds. This in turn uses
time.time which is sensitive to the system clock,
meaning that it may return decreasing values if the
user sets the system clock to an earlier time between
calls. This would likely break many things, no? Why
not use time.clock or some combination between them?
