    Kludge cryptech_backup into working with Python 3.8
    PyCrypto is past EOL and we really should move on, but not this close
    to a release.  Working around the deprecated time.clock function is
    sick but appears to be harmless given the way that function is used in
    PyCrypto's internal RNG.  Would be better just to use os.urandom() but
    that would be a much larger change.
    In theory, PyCryptodome is a drop-in replacement for PyCrypto which
    would solve this problem for us.  Unfortunately, it's much less of a
    drop-in than its documentation suggests, even before one gets into
    Debian and pip disagreeing on what its name should be.  Maybe someday,
    but not today.
