=head2 TIME REPRESENTATION
Libev represents time as a single floating point number, representing
the (fractional) number of seconds since the (POSIX) epoch (somewhere
near the beginning of 1970, details are complicated, don't ask). This
type is called C<ev_tstamp>, which is what you should use too. It usually
aliases to the C<double> type in C. When you need to do any calculations
on it, you should treat it as some floating point value. Unlike the name
component C<stamp> might indicate, it is also used for time differences
throughout libev.
