I think Lars' suggestion was to slap the functions that are run from
the timers, instead of the functions that run the timers.
That is more or less what I originally proposed, I think.
The reason I think Lars meant changing the C code is the words
"the equivalent of".
Anyway, regardless of what Lars had in mind, the idea of making the C
code to run timers also preserve the current buffer is an idea
