Yes it would, if "time" is in ticks.  The "GetLastAccess" internalcall
isn't currently implemented (volunteers wanted).  It needs to do a stat
and return the time value in ticks.

Ticks are "100 nanosecond" units since Jan 1, 0001.  See the
"GetCurrentTime" internalcall in "lib_time.c" and the function
"ILGetCurrTime" in "support/time.c" for an example of converting
between Unix time values and ticks.
