Feature #8096: introduce Time.current_timestamp
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8096

=begin
A lot of scenarios and applications require the use of Time.now.to_i which is used as current_timestamp in systems.

The introduction of Time.current_timestamp {or something with similar with different name} would provide implicit integer timestamp instead of going from 
Time.now -> time_object -> to_i -> integer timestamp value

So instead of 

(({> Time.now.to_i # Outputs => 1363274618}))

one could use

(({> Time.current_timestamp # Outputs => 1363274618}))
