That's correct. Sorry for the unfortunate name; a better name for
this function would be "ioHighResMSecs()". It returns
a value in milliseconds using a clock with sub-millisecond resolution.
On the Mac, this just happened to be the Microseconds() function...

The comment in InterpreterSimulator>>ioMicroMSecs is wrong.
