Using schedulers in Profiles

Hi everyone,
Since we now have support for profiles in ESH, I am currently writing my second profile.
This profile needs to use a scheduler in order to transform button presses into long or short presses and button-holds and from there to ON, OFF, and Increase, Decrease events.
In the ThingHandlers there is access to a scheduler from the base class.
In the Profiles there is no such scheduler. When trying to get one the same way as the base handler (

ScheduledExecutorService scheduler = ThreadPoolManager .getScheduledPool(THING_HANDLER_THREADPOOL_NAME);

Eclipse complains about using a non-API class.

How do you guys suggest I solve this?
