[compiz] [PATCH] Remove timeout callback

While working on the python plugin, I realised that the
timeout system does not allow for notification when a timeout
is removed. This has been fine up until now because he closures
never needed to be cleaned up.
In the python plugin, I pass through a custom structure which
needs to be cleaned up if the timeout is removed. This is almost
certainly the cause of some horrible memory leaks for me.
The attached patch is a simple solution to the problem. I think
it should be good enough for most situations.
I could maintain some sort of lookup inside my plugin, but I think
other plugins would benefit from this.
It is OK to go in or were there any comments?
