Tag Support for timers (same method as Transitions)
Transitions 2.0 allows for control by tag groups. Allowing timers to also support tags would make them much easier to control as scenes are entered and exited.

Just thought I'd share that while we wait for Corona to implement these (in my opinion) necessary changes, I went ahead and rolled my own "Timer 2.0" library that you can use to add this functionality to the timer library with one line of code. My unofficial library update is fully backwards-compatible with the existing official APIs, but adds a great deal more functionality. You can read about it and download the library's lua file here: http://www.jasonschroeder.com/2015/02/25/timer-2-0-library-for-corona-sdk/
I'd like the timer.* API to be equivalent to the transition.* API.
o Tags should be supported
o timer.pause() pauses all active timers
o timer.resume() resumes all paused timers
