[plt-scheme] r6rs timer

Thanks for replying. Much obliged indeed.But as the implementation of SRFI 
19 depends on PLT Scheme, I may as well directly import macro "time" from 
scheme/base. I was looking for a timing tool that is available in all R6RS 
implementations. Apparently such a timer is not included in R6RS or any of 
its libraries. An omission? (I tend to think so :)
