If it's possible to get the timer to work, then I think the rest is just
a small matter of programming.

While the process-reporter interface is very clean and nice, it does
require that you pass around the reporter object, which can be fiddly,
too -- but it's a fiddliness that all the users of the code have to
relate to.  Whereas a hysteresis-safe `message' would just work without
anybody thinking about it.

I mean, if we could get it to work.
