Shh, I'm not for this at all. What we should do is provide the ability
to plug tooz in an event loop but, as you know, most of the modules we
use are not providing such a feature so we're stuck on building a "while
True: heartbeat()" loop… :(

I think it's better to let the user run heartbeat() it's own
system (thread, event loop, whatever) and not mess with that.
