 * Instances of this class represent moments in time, or a special "null"

 * reset, causing apparent backward travel in time, which can confuse
 * algorithms. Instead we measure elapsed time according to the system.
 * This time can never go backwards (i.e. it never wraps around, at least
 * not in less than five million years of system elapsed time). It might
 * not advance while the system is sleeping. If TimeStamp::SetNow() is not
 * called at all for hours or days, we might not notice the passage
 * of some of that time.
 * 
 * We deliberately do not expose a way to convert TimeStamps to some
 * particular unit. All you can do is compute a difference between two
 * TimeStamps to get a TimeDuration. You can also add a TimeDuration
 * to a TimeStamp to get a new TimeStamp. You can't do something
 * meaningless like add two TimeStamps.
 *
 * Internally this is implemented as a wrapper around PRIntervalTime.
 * We detect wraparounds of PRIntervalTime and work around them.
