the only thing i wanted is: An expert-estimation if while-no-input is a good
way - or with-local-quit - if i remember right you said that this could
easily being backported - maybe its not a really good idea to use a macro
which is only available in forthcoming Emacs 22 - IMHO also users of Emacs 21.X
should get a good solution...

is there a short example how to use this with-local-quit? This would help me
a lot - or a pointer where to find such an example..

Thanks for your help,
