FWIW, PeriodicalExecuter has always struck me as a bit of a wart on
the Prototype API. The name and usage are awkward, and it's
functionality really feels like something that should just be a
Function extension, as we're seeing in this thread.  I'm assuming it's
presence is mostly a legacy thing.

But... I'm not really arguing for it's removal.  Just pissing into the
wind.  :-)
