  Description     : A basic library for rate-limiting IO actions

In many cases, it is useful, necessary, or simply nice to limit how
frequently you perform some action. For example, you may want to limit
how often your program makes a request of some web site. This library
is intended as a general-purpose mechanism for rate-limiting IO


According to Clint, this will be required for the new taffybar package

I do not plan on maintaining this, and hope someone will magically
step up to do so. :) But I would certainly use the resulting taffybar,
which I'm pretty excited about...
