Yes, it is. Most of the people using this scheduler will be interested
in "a few [decades, hundreds] millisecond" period and budget. Someone
might want to try microsecs, someone may be fine with seconds.

For anyone that is interested in anything else, this scheduler is the
wrong solution. Then, of course, they can have a go with it (never say
never! :-D), but no point in optimizing --neither the algorithm nor the
interface-- for such use cases.
