No, I did not mean adding another interface. Why can't we have a trigger
which just triggers once and then stops? It would be similar to the
timer trigger but with a different name and way of operating.

I'd first like to understand why this couldn't be a separate trigger,
then we can understand the alternatives we're comparing.
