One other random idea. What about mixing up the param order for
parallelism with the existing timer APIs:

Timer startTimer(Function callback, double delay, bool repeating);

That would make a call look like this:

var timer = startTimer(function() { ... }, 42, true);

Which feels more familiar, but at the same timer better. Less new
things to remember. Also, I think this argues for the unit to continue
being milliseconds, again, for familiarity.
