The problem you have with a timer, is the speed at wich individuals
set their double click at the OS level. I've had to use that same
trick before as well, but if someone has a slower (i.e 500ms) double
click rate, then you run into the same problem of doSomething()
getting called before doSomethingElse() gets called. I'd hate to bake
that into the SDK, since there's no "standard" speed at which double
click is performed. Of course, unless we surface the ability to change
that rate, which is a valid option. Unless someone else has a better
