[chuck-users] implementing a "wait for signal with timeout"

Attached is a solution I came up with for this problem that I used in my
PLOrk piece this spring. I spork a "possibility" for something to happen,
which waits on an event. Immediately after I spork a "timeout" shred that
kills the possibility shred if the event doesn't come in time.

One downside of this (I'm sure there are others I haven't thought of!)  is
that using Machine.remove causes stuff to print in the console. To get rid
of that I piped the output to grep. From the command line run:
chuck timeout.ck 2>&1 | grep -v removing
