There are times when one wants to do something async. This is possible with
setTimeout, but that doesn't run "as soon as possible". It's possible to abuse
some API that uses async events, e.g. window.postMessage or XHR, but that's
abuse. It would be nice if there were an API just to dispatch an event async
i.e. put it on the event queue.
