8.7 Countdown timer

Calling org-timer-set-timer from an Org mode buffer runs a countdown timer. Use ; from agenda buffers, <C-c C-x ;> everywhere else.

org-timer-set-timer prompts the user for a duration and displays a countdown timer in the modeline. org-timer-default-timer sets the default countdown value. Giving a prefix numeric argument overrides this default value.
