I'm just saying there is not much difference between an app the does
setTimeout(0) once and one that does setTimeout(30000) every 30s. But it
is a bit of a mute point as I'm convinced that doing this via setTimeout is
wrong anyway.

Oh good idea! It is dispatch that signals the start of a new cycle, which
may be synchronous or asynchronous/
