If the only safe assumption is that no "instantaneous" processes exist
and the policy is not to make Emacs wait on processes any more than it
already does then the conclusion is that this patch can't go into

I don't think I'll revisit the issue using a different approach since
what I have works fine for me, which leaves me with no drive to change
it. Finally, when the ratio of the length of the discussion about the
patch on emacs-devel to the length of the patch is far greater than 1,
it is probably time to put the matter to rest.

Thank you David for patiently going over this. I certainly appreciate
