When a StoppableTimerTask is passed to TimerUtil.schedule(), TimerUtil will keep track of it so that it can call StoppableTimerTask.stop() during TimerUtil.destroy(). Note that when a StoppableTimerTask is done, it should call TimerTask.unschedule(this) so that the reference to it is removed. Note that there is a danger of an infinite loop because if StoppableTimerTask.stop() calls TimerTask.unschedule(this), the TimerTask.unschedule(this) will call this.StoppableTimerTask(). It follows that StoppableTimerTask.stop() should guard against this danger.
