I hear you about the process.

About the need part, I'm wondering if you haven't felt it in
implementing the timers for asyncio. I have had that need in several
network programming projects and have ended up using my AVL tree
implementation (C and Python).

Well, time will tell if frequent canceled timers end up piling up the
heap queue.
