       Padre::Wx::Role::Timer -	Convenience methods for	working	with Wx	timers

       This role implements a set of methods for letting Wx objects in Padre
       implement dwell events on elements that do not otherwise	natively
       support them.

       In this initial simplified implementation, we support only one common
       dwell event for each combination	of object class	and dwell method.

       If multiple instances of	a class	are used, then the timer id will
       collide across multiple timers and unexpected behaviour may occur.

	 # Half	second dwell timer on a	text input
	 $wx_object->dwell_start( on_text => 500 );

       The "dwell_start" method	starts (or restarts) the dwell timer.

       It has two required parameters of the method to call, and the amount of
       time (in	thousands of a second) that the	event should be	delayed.

       Note that when the dwell-delayed	event is actually called, it will NOT
       be passed the original Wx event object. The method will be called
       directly	and with no parameters.

       Please note that	calling	this method will result	in the creating	of a
       Wx::Timer object	in an object HASH slot that matches the	name of	the

       As a result, if you wish	to create a dwell to a method "foo" you	may
       never make use of the "$wx_object->{foo}" slot on that object.

	 $wx_object->dwell_stop( 'on_text' );

       The "dwell_stop"	method prevents	a single named dwell event from
       firing, if there	is a timer underway.

       If there	is no dwell for	the named event	the method will	silently
