Note that doing this would change the class semantics.
Timer "[...] represents an action that should be run only after a
certain amount of time has passed — a timer." and the example clearly
shows that the action is run *once*.
Timer is basically an example of how to write custom Thread
subclasses; if you want a "repetitive action", you may easily write a
subclass based on the code you posted. Not every useful class must be
in the standard library...
