> @neologix: Please open a new issue if you disagree with me on the definition of "seconds" for time.process_time().

I won't reopen, but I still disagree with your definition.
process_time() returns second, as does the Unix 'time' command return:

$ time sleep 1

real    0m1.014s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.000s

AFAICT, process_time() returns user + sys. Since the unit of those two
fields are second, the value returned is in second. I doesn't include
time spent in 'S'/'D'/whatever time, but it's still seconds.
