.."trying to create many processes, with timers all having very close
together stop times leads to very noticeable drift. The closer they are
together, the worse it is."

Would this be a fair summary:

- timer works for pausing for at least a while;

- when exact interval is critical, another solution may be necessary;

- there are technical limits to timer, much like to the vm.

The fact that both timer and vm can take a lot of wear does not mean that
things should be piled up until vm breaks. Spreading the load may help.
