Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news :(. Again, I just have my
user hat on here. It does seem like this unifying would have been nice
to have. And even, more compliant with the POSIX definition of

On that note, maybe it is still worth introducing MONOTONIC_ACTIVE,
but just as an alias for MONOTONIC for now. It's also more
self-documenting. Then sometime in the future, if people switch over,
remove BOOTTIME and make MONOTONIC like BOOTTIME. Though this doesn't
help simplify the code, I know.

Thanks again,
