    Usage

    var addTimeout = require("addTimeout");
     
    var callback = function(err){
      if(err)
        throw err;
      console.log("hello, world : this has been fired before the timeout !"
    };
     
    // here is some examples with setTimeout
    setTimeout(addTimeout(500, callback), 100); //max timeout: 500ms, setTimeout will call the callback in 100ms -> result is OK !
    setTimeout(addTimeout(500, callback), 1000); //max timeout: 500ms, setTimeout will call the callback in 1000ms -> too late : TimeoutError as the first callback argument!
     
    // with an error handler
    function errHandler(err) {
      console.log("Timeout !", err);
    }
    setTimeout(addTimeout(500, callback, errHandler), 100); //max timeout: 500ms, setTimeout will call the callback in 100ms -> result is OK !
    setTimeout(addTimeout(500, callback, errHandler), 1000); //max timeout: 500ms, setTimeout will call the callback in 1000ms -> too late : TimeoutError ! -> callback will not be called, but errHandler will, getting the Error as first argument

    Notes

    Supports negative timeout (always fail) as well a short time (<20ms) timeout. In those cases, the callback will be called asap, but it's likely to be in ~20ms after addTimeout call
