I don't see sched as obsoleted by threading.Timer.  It's much simpler
to use (no need for locking) and more efficient (no legions of
sleeping threads).  Instead, maybe it should be removed because it's
trivial to reimplement as well as being overshadowed by all the other
event loops built into bigger systems (tk, qt, gtk, twisted, etc)?
