Nice to hear - and your patch will be very welcome! If have questions on 
the code do not hesitate to ask here.

Concerning the fact that you want the time between checks being 
reflected I could imagine that the event broker module and stuff like 
IDOUtils need to be patched too - if this information is relevant to the 
user to be in a database e.g.

Kind regards,
