The timer stuff has been seperated from the event loop. Please see
HTTimer.html. You will mostly be interested in
extern HTTimer * HTTimer_new (HTTimer *, HTTimerCallback *,
void *, ms_t millis, BOOL relative);
which is used fairly extensively in the library. I don't remember testing
the function for the case where relative is false, but if you stick to
relative timeouts, it should suite you well.

Oops, looks like that shouldn't be in the HTEvtLst header.
