re-reading, we are doing that, but using an end-of-timer signal to
drive an interrupt which re-enables the timer pulse-train again. The
timer is re-enabled with as many pulses as remain, or the max-val if
more pulses are requested than the timer can handle (128 is the max I
think before overflow).

So put another way, how would you trigger the same overflow
subtraction arithmetic at the of of the timer pulse-train, which
doesn't use interrupts? Just busy-loop (or otherwise check on a
schedule) some status register, then do your arithmetic and update the
repetition register and restart?
