Subject Re: Post-Sampler Timers

Very good idea !
We always use the following strategy to have this  feature:

   - Use TestAction with 0 sleep and nest in it the Timer. This way timer
   pauses where it is located for the expected time and not SampleResult is

So you idea would help as it is a bit harder to maintain.
One note although, how would you handle scoping ?
Would it stay as is ? If yes, won't code be difficult and clumsy ?
