If this is the problem to solve, then why not something like below?

  (if (sit-for 3)
      (while-no-input
        (do-something-longish)))

IOW, what I don't understand is why put sit-for, which returns as soon
as there's input, inside while-no-input, which does something similar,
but using a radically different method?
