I've been experimenting with idle-timer and I must agree, it is very
easy to implement and works *surprisingly* well.
Even so, that I've left it as the default method to check buffer and
theme in my package.

In my case, C was the main headache when switching to eww/shr-based
buffers. Looks like 25.x shr use lots of temporary buffers for its
rendering tasks.

Then A and B (using helm here) causes some "flickering" with
select-window advicing method too.
As I've mentioned in other email, perspective package also aggravated
what I saw.

Thanks again to all for your help and suggestions,
