When I'm debugging, I find it very useful to have my threads named with descriptive names that appear in the debugger. However, I cannot name the threads in the java.util.Timer class. Can you add a constructor that takes a thread name?

EVALUATION

   Adding such a constructor is a bit tricky, as one can end up with an exponential blowup in the number of constructors.  At the very least, we should give the Timer thread more meaningful name.
