OK, but then the same considerations should prohibit using an idle
timer, no?

How about the following idea: we don't start the timer from
run_undoable_change; instead, we set a flag there that will be checked
by the command loop when it finishes execution of a command, and the
call to start the timer will be made then?  We don't really need to
attempt to start the timer for each and every change of every buffer,
do we?
