Reduce resource use by timers...

It would be possible to have timers not be allocated events until they would fire. This will reduce the resource use because cancelled timers will never consume events. However, this has different semantics because now timers will willingly be delayed by Repy (although the OS could always do this unbeknownst to us).

Since this changes the semantics of settimer, etc. I believe it's important to get consensus on whether or not this is a good idea before implementing.
