Why func(vlc_timer_t, data) instead of just func(vlc_timer_t) and
expecting func to say vlc_timer_t->data?

As a sidenote, some systems have hard limits on the number of timers one
can create (and the system might fail in Interesting Ways should that
limit be reached). I don't know what order of number of timers vlc would
like to use, but do we have fallbacks for the less time critical timer
