Things to watch out for: 
 - older boost - had trouble with this and undid some previous minor use
of boost::date_time a while back.
 - performance & resolution: probably fine but the templates were too
labyrinthine for for me to be sure.
 - impact on existing code using AbsTime/Duration

So my suggestion: if boost::time solves your problem on windows then do
a new sys/boost/Time.cpp impl using boost::time, so no impact on other

If the boost impl works ok on linuxen, solaris etc. then we can use it
everywhere. On any platform where we do have a problem (performance
effects, portability, dealing with older boost) we can conditionally use
the old impl. Ideally there are no issues and we ditch the old impl but
I wouldn't assume that in advance.
