[BZ#328137] Timer tick in the GnomeMud API
Submitted by Martin Rudat

It would be nice to be able to register a function to be called on a regular basis with the GnomeMud API. I know that there are other ways that this could be done, but something in the API would make for one timer thread (for example) for the whole application, rather than one for each module that wants a heartbeat.
