I agree that this is the superior approach. But at the same
time I am not comfortable with hiding the actual resolution
of the timer behind a Double. I believe this is something a
wrapper for 'timeout' should do, not 'timeout' itself.

Converting durations of time into different units is
something far more general. System.Time should do that, not
Childs.hs, IMHO.
