That already exists in the form of EpikTimer
(https://github.com/graemeg/epiktimer). That is the latest
implementation with the permission of the original author.

It uses the highest resolution timer it can find on each platform, and
GetTickCount/GetTickCount64 as a fall-back in case no higher resolution
timer exists. High resolution timers exists for Windows, Linux and
FreeBSD - that I know of. OSX might also be implemented.
