Multiple Time Bases on a Single MSP430 Timer Module

On dangerousprototypes.com, they refer to an other interesting TI app-note which describes how to use multiple time bases on a single MSP430 module:

However, in some applications, multiple time bases are needed to generate multiple output frequencies. Normally this is done using multiple timer modules, but this might require upgrading to a part with many more extra features that may not be needed for the application. However, in exchange for a small amount of software overhead, multiple time bases can be implemented on a single MSP430 timer module, allowing for more features to be implemented on a simpler MSP430 device.
