I think you already know it's very easy enough to make a "timeouts that
try to catch up".  what's more difficult is making one that saves the
api user any time or trouble.

you've already given a pretty good example of how to deal with this
problem properly.  something like: use the timeout to fetch the real
system time once every 999/1000's of a second.  imho, there's not enough
complexity added to make hiding it in an api worthwhile.
