Something might be doable with telling the clock API about maintianing
ratios between clocks?  I do think we should have an idea where we'd go
with such requirements, even if we don't currently handle it, so that we
can hopefully avoid another round of refactoring everything but it
doesn't seem 100% essential, just very nice to have.
