Actually my Timer was inspired by the ns-2 one, but I could not understand how
differentiating between sched and resched has any use. If I was programming
with these timers I would always call resched to make sure it always works.
Slightly different semantics just adds a bit of extra complexity to the API and
I'm not sure there is any again.
Nor why status() is any use; perhaps a IsRunning () method could help, but
other than that...
In ns-2 resched is used about 250 times, vs about 90 times for sched. And in
any case I would argue that in this code:
NS_ASSERT (!timer.IsRunning ());
the precondition that the timer must not be running is easier to read than when
it is hidden in this code:
