Well that's clearly not true.  I think it is pretty hard to tune
because you'd have to guess what the user's going to do...

Maybe it should only try to stealth-fontify some amount of text before
and after the current point (e.g., 100 lines before and after; if the
user moves, then just give up on the old position...), which would
provide a bit of buffering to make page-movement fast, but not spend
ages fontifying the entirety of giant source files.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.
