I don't think so. Having shield not cancel immediately but rather wait and
cancel will cause long timed shielded operations to stall the task
cancellation, usually for no good. This isn't the general case.
However, adding another function which does so might just be a good idea. I
think another parameter to shield to choose cancellation time will clutter
the function call.
