ok, the good news is that the cvs version, and probably 3.6 onward already
call timers in strict ordering, and this is not a concidence.

I also can't find where it is described as undefined in the documentation -
if you point out ot me where this is written, we can declare it a doc bug and
fix the docs to reflect reality, namely that timer callbacksa are invoked in

the EV testsuite also checks for this explicitly.

so the issue might be a non-issue after all.
