There are already 2 ideas for even further improvement:
- Use 1 thread to fire events for all timers.
  Should be relatively easy.

- Don't use synchronize to fire the timer, because that limits
  the use of timers to the main thread.
  This one is harder, and I must confess I don't have a clue
  on how to implement this in a platform independent manner...
