I also added warnings to the file in the 1.0 branch.

They are not even reversed, but the entire idea behind the start/stop
functions is bogus.  Of course, you cannot start/stop a timer by
writing to the TCNT0 register.  But then, you can't start it without
fully specifying the clock source anway (which is actually the purpose
of the timer0_source() function).  Since we just removed the file from
HEAD, I'd rather not mess with this at all, and only left a comment
there that the functions are bogus.
