   (while t..) spin is a common way to wait for async conditions

Why not check the condition directly, i.e., s/t/CONDITION/ like:

   (accept-process-output ...))

That is more precise, no?  Another idea, if there is some
expected traffic, is to use ‘(accept-process-output ...)’
directly as (or as part of) CONDITION, using its return value.
