I did not meant to call it gettime2(), this was just an example.

The idea is to provide a GP interface that is similar to the C/libpari interface
so that GP2C can translate the one to the other (using timer_printf here).

Basically to improve GP2C, either you add C interfaces similar to GP or you add
GP interfaces similar to C.
