@rwaldron ^

My feeling is that is absolutely not what developers would expect these things would do. And you'll end-up with folks cranking up frequency as high as they (thinking it's the polling frequency) and the complain that the API is shit.

> Android does the same

Does it really? I thought these referred to the polling period (1/f).
