timeMethod gives platform-dependent results

      Description

      The @timeMethod decorator is currently implemented in terms of Python's resource package, whose behavior depends on the operating system it is run on (for example, the resident set size may be given in bytes, kibibytes, or pages). This is particularly confusing in a distributed system, where the platform on which the decorator runs may not be obvious (see discussion on verify#47).

      Find a way to make this decorator more platform-agnostic; Tim Jenness has suggested using psutil instead of resource.
