I don't know what you are actually in mind.

I just can tell that when I need to run some code later, I use a timer 
object and its Trigger() method. That way the code is run at the next 
event loop.

But it requires a lot of lines of codes, so maybe we can imagine 
something like:

   Do SomeFunction() Next

that would run 'SomeFunction' at the next event loop.

The syntax is not terrible, but introducing new keywords in the language 
may break existing code.

Another point: as there is no closure in Gambas, the function cannot 
take any arguments.
