If you are trying to time something (an interval), having the time go backward can really screw up your data.  And that *will* happen on a system that is running NTP (or even just resets its time).  monotonic clocks were introduced at the OS level for a reason, and it seems reasonable for Python to expose them (when the are available) like it does other system resources.
