Remarks

This timer is intended to be used only by a single consumer at a time: only one call to WaitForNextTickAsync(CancellationToken) may be in flight at any given moment.

Dispose() may be used concurrently with an active WaitForNextTickAsync(CancellationToken) to interrupt it and cause it to return false.
