At least the documentation should tell on which platform it's supposed 
to work. I know that it's supposed to work on windows (obviously, except 
for GetTickCount64 which doesn't work under xp), linux and freebsd (due to

{$IF defined(LINUX) or defined(FreeBSD)}


Since those are the only platform I'm interested in, it's fine for me, 
but to know that I had to look at the implementation.
