What kind of precision are you looking for, and what kind of things you
need to do with this timer?

You can create Dispatch Queues that you can use to schedule your own
timers, these would be running on their own thread.   But sometimes all you
want is to piggy back on an existing queue that might be tied to
AVFoundation (for video/audio) or the UI (AppKit has something similar to
the CADisplayLink, but I cant remember what it is called).
