Oh, right.  I knew that at one point, but had forgotten...

So do we want to use multiple values here?  Does anyone have a good
argument either way?  It could make it cheap for a compiler to toss
the additional prev-timer value.  It's too bad a multiple value
returning function can't tell during execution which values the caller
will actually use :>
