Ah fantastic, thanks. I was looking in pipe and not seeing it, but was
probably just lost in other new details and not seeing the forest for the
trees. :-)

Couple of follow ups:
- is there a separate facility for making a repeated callback (ie not
one-shot), or does one just do both with clock?
- is it safe to make clocks as we need them (ie during a method call, not
necessarily at object instantiation time), or is this the kind of thing
where for real time use one needs to make a clock pool and a pool manager
and all that?
