Hello, I'm currently writing my finals project using Python and needed a feature that threading.Timer could nearly but not quite fulfill:
Execute a function after given time *with arguments provided and have the timer resettable*. 

So I did it myself and today I had the idea that it may be a good addition to the standartlibrary. The class is attached, on the bottom is a small test.
