This function is useless; it’s fine to call
g_timer_start() on an
already-started timer to reset the start time, so
serves no purpose.
Marks a start time, so that future calls to
report the time since
g_timer_start() was called.
automatically marks the start time, so no need to call
g_timer_start() immediately after creating the timer.
Marks an end time, so calls to
g_timer_elapsed() will return the
difference between this end time and the start time.
