I don't remember anything about that call to sit-for from 20 years ago.
But I have a guess why it is there: because without it, execution would
be so fast you couldn't even see things scroll past.  So you might as well
proceed at full speed.

If that mode is useful for you, I have nothing against supporting it.
I think it would not be very useful in general, so I would not make
it the default.
