Hmm... Maybe my description was incorrect. From what I see, it will
schedule a new event at first point in time that's in the future,
given a starting point and a recurrance interval.

Normally, if I schedule something in the past, it will run on the very
next hit to the site. But this function will push that interval in
there up to the point where it schedules in the future, at the next
correct time given the starting point and the interval.

I'm uncertain if that's intended behavior or not. If it is, then the
function name is pretty poorly chosen.
