Is there any advantage for that?

I'll probably put it in `scheme/promise' as some `delay/idle', so it
works with `force' as usual.

(There is some concern if there are several of these things active --
if both use the same delay values, then one can starve the other.  But
I don't think that this is a problem since it's used only for idle
