Murphy would need to do something pretty invasive to get the timer to
execute in that scope, I think.  (Not relevant for this context, but
threads don't play nicely with cl-letf; if you cl-letf bind a function
definition in one thread and then yield execution to another, the second
thread can see the cl-letf binding.)

Anyway, I'd be glad to see API proposals (backward-compatibility
concerns aside).
