Right now the only time-dependent option is the GPS fix one.  It times out
at 30 seconds.  It might be possible to add a general delay to the switch
operation though.  The hard part at this point is scraping up enough RAM for
another timer!

I've dealt a little with ladder logic in PLCs, and it gives you a flexible
way to set that sort of thing up without having to be a programmer.  In the
Tracker2 I hope to implement some sort of simple (non-graphical) scripting
language to do exactly that sort of thing.  Chances are it won't be done in
time for the initial release, though.
