Metronome class

A stream of DateTime events at intervals centered on anchor.

This stream accounts for drift but only guarantees that events are delivered on or after the interval. If the system is busy for longer than two intervals, only one will be delivered.

anchor defaults to clock.now, which means the stream represents a self-correcting periodic timer. If anchor is the epoch, then the stream is synchronized to wall-clock time. It can be anchored anywhere in time, but this does not delay the first delivery.

Examples:

new Metronome.epoch(aMinute).listen((d) => print(d));

Could print the following stream of events, anchored by epoch, till the stream is canceled:

2014-05-04 14:06:00.001
2014-05-04 14:07:00.000
2014-05-04 14:08:00.003
...

Example anchored in the future (now = 2014-05-05 20:06:00.123)

new IsochronousStream.periodic(aMillisecond * 100,
    anchorMs: DateTime.parse("2014-05-05 21:07:00"))
    .listen(print);

2014-05-04 20:06:00.223
2014-05-04 20:06:00.324
2014-05-04 20:06:00.423
...
