On a whim, I started an erlang shell, counted the processes (some 25),
then called `erlang:send_after/3` -- I was surprised to see that the
count of processes never went up. Do these timer routines not spawn a
new process!? Seems like a perfect candidate for such. 'Would love
some hand-holding on how this all works before I stare at the source.
