Fixing Jitter - Timestep Issues

Intro

While working on Cala, I noticed something strange about how timesteps are usually handled, and a way to fix an issue with them. A little bit of background first: a timestep (delta time) is how much time passes between each frame in a game or animation. In the early days games didn't handle this correctly. They would develop for whatever computer system was popular at the time and set a fixed delta time.
