 Replying to [comment:8 JordanCrouse]:

 > We can get over 18 hours of time tracking at the highest divisor, but we
 won't be able to do any better then second resolutions, which is no better
 then we have now.  Cutting the precision down to a more reasonable 250
 milliseconds will only give us a little bit more then two hours of
 tracking before the counter will roll.  I think that is too little time
 for this to be a reliable replacement for the RTC.

 I agree.  But we already have the RTC to tell us what second it is; we can
 just set up an MFGPT to tell us at what fraction of a second we resumed.
 (We could use both MFGPT's if we wanted, with different prescalers, to
 give us full range as well as high precision.)
