The use case here was for CPU-hogging Lisp code, though, like
`shr-insert-document'.  And it doesn't seem to hit any maybe_quits in
this very synthetic test:

(with-delayed-message 0.5 "Yes"
  (dotimes (i 1000000)
       '(html nil
              (body nil
                    (table nil
                           (tr nil
                               (td nil "Here's a line ")
                               (td nil "Here's a line ")))))))))
Could `with-delayed-message' set a flag that would call maybe_quit more
often, somehow?
