Several users have asked for the ability to add timeout events that, when triggered, reschedule themselves unless explicitly removed with event_del().

    See also [ 1831173 ] EV_PERSIST and timeout interactions for an implementation with an API I don't love. This is doable, and probably wants a PERIODIC flag.

    See also [ 1826585 ] Absolute timer support for another timer-api-related feature we should figure about how to integrate with this one.

    This is supported in trunk now. Would be easy to backport to patches-1.4, too.
