  def reset seconds
    prev = EM.instance_variable_get('@timers')[@signature]
    initialize(seconds){ prev.call }

  def postpone seconds

    EM.instance_variable_get('@timers')[@signature] = proc{

initialize should probably also set @seconds, and reset should default to re-using the value of @seconds

This patch potentially causes leaks, if it holds a reference to the proc even after its fired. More generally, the behavior of #reset and #postpone is unclear if they are invoked after the timer was already fired.
