Probably this method should even be used to generate a symmetric waveform, if
it is possible to change the mode "on the fly".
Just after each interrupt the mode should be chnged from 0x1000 to 0x1001,
and after the next interrupt from 0x1001 to 0x1000.
So single TIMER1 + 2 CCPs  should be able to generate two symmetric
waveforms with different frequencies and jitter-free slopes.
(however the interrupt rate will be high).
Is it correct?
