Agreed, but accept-process-output is not always slow and we don't always get
to choose.  I've hacked my Emacs to signal an error if accept-process-output
is called (without timeout) with inhibit-quit set to non-nil and discovered
that some package (IIRC, flyspell) does exactly that.  Of course, ispell
is a local process that always responds immeditely, right?
Anyway: how could flyspell do its job without calling 
accept-process-output from a timer or a post-command-hook?
