Actually `float(x) / 1e9` and `x / 1e9` seems to produce the same results:

import time
import itertools
now = time.time_ns()                                                                          
for x in itertools.count(now):
    assert float(x) / 1e9 == x / 1e9

> The formula `time = time_ns / 10**9` may be more accurate.

Well that seems to not be the case, see the plots and the corresponding code. I might have made a mistake though, please let me know if I got something wrong :)
