Thanks, timber looks interesting and definitely worth looking at .
Behaviors are used to represent values that change continuously with
time. Even if the implementation is discrete (as all digital
hardware), it may be more natural to treat things such as a
temperature sensor, mouse position, and perhaps even video as
functions of continuous time, values that vary continuously. So
behaviors are not a workaround at all, in this sense.
