I think that would an _extremely_ bad idea -- I often hit C-g like crazy
when response is just the tiniest bit slow (or even simply because I'm
angry at something else).

If parts of emacs just stopped working, in invisible and hard to debug
ways, just because the user happened to hit C-g a few too many times, it
would be very annoying and confusing for users.
