Add an option for PeriodicalExecuter to trigger immediately

Default behaviour is for the callback to be executed for the first time after the first sleep period, but it would be nice if there was an option for it to trigger immediately as well.

Simple (but undocumented) workaround is:

var pex = new PeriodicalExecuter(function(pe) {
   // stuff here 
}, 5);
pex.execute();
