The documentation existent ( http://docs.python.org/library/threading.html#threading.Timer ) is not very helpful. The user is left wondering about the exact syntax of this function, what types of parameter it accepts etc. Could this possibly be fixed?

That's just a summary.  The full documentation of the class is further down the page.  What's missing is a hyperlink from the summary to the full description.  It's probably just a markup error.
