Adding Stopwatch to eForm Quizzes

With eForm you can already add timer to quizzes. The timer forces the user to submit after specified amount of time. But if you want to just record the time taken by a user, then you can use the stopwatch feature.

When enabled, it shows a stopwatch to the form like the image above.
