Yes.. and interval isn't even in there at all. I'm not totally clear on
how these instances of timeout are used. It seems like it's more of an
overall thing, like for the code that manages all the tests. I do not
know what that translates into in terms of prevalence or obscurity. Also,
note well that the makers of acidtests.org used variable names like
kungFuDeathGrip = [e1, e2];
So it's possible that the acidtests has idiosyncracies in the first
place... there may have been a lot of LSD going around when they wrote

Interesting that you should point this out.
My throttle is only valid for intervals, which fire repeatedly.
There are no restrictions on timers, which fire only once.
So if a timer is scheduled for now + 10ms, then it fires at now + 10ms.
However, if that timer schedules another timer for now + 10 ms, then that timer
fires in 10 ms, and it continues every 10 ms, and you have found a way around
In any browser, that's more resource intensive than a 10 ms interval.
We're constantly creating objects every 10 ms, which gc must clean up before
they accumulate, etc.
It's so inefficient I'm guessing nobody would do this, except maybe an acid
