You can't use idle timers even with such reasonable timeouts
as 5 minutes between saves, i.e. when the user needs to save
the desktop every 5 minutes, with idle timers the user have to sit
inactively 5 minutes waiting for Godot^H^H^H^H^H desktop saving.
Thus desktop saving requires two different timers out of necessity.

You can see the whole relevant emacs-devel thread
where this problem was discussed here:
