Currently, environmentedge returns time in 'millis'. The parent issue is about being able to return something else for time. In fact we already have an incrementing ee which is returning 'time' but not in 'millis' and ditto for our manual ee... so the method name is a little limiting even in our current code.
This is first step on way to changing our ts (left-shifting it or whatever we decide).
EnvironmentEdge is private audience.
Trying to do this for 1.0.
