Not portably. There evidently exist a number of SYSV-derived unices
in which getting a usable millisecond wall-clock time is not possible.
In the interest of keeping the MOO server runnable on the widest
possible variety of OSes/architectures, Pavel elected not to put in
a suspend/fork-for-milliseconds construct (something which we started to
badly want when LambdaMOO's task-seconds-limit dropped to 3).
