  Some comments on the current implementation:

1. In your _time() function, you can probably get away with:

	local function _time()
	  return os.time() * 1000

If you are relying upon GNU coreutils date command, then you are probably on
a POSIX system, and POSIX systems return the number of seconds from Jan 1,
1970.  No reason to shell out there.

2. For your _schedule_task() routine, you might want to look into binary
heaps.  It's what I use for handing timeouts in my framework dealing with
network events.  You can see the implementation I use at:

The two functions are TOQUEUE:insert() and TOQUEUE:remove().  The next task
to run is always in TOQUEUE[1].  You can see me checking this:

  I can see why this would be useful, but I would have to think about how I
would add this to my existing framework.
