The idea is good but still not what I want.  I don't want the entire
rest of my buffer get refontified even when I do not stay on the same

What I really wanted is a simple mechanism that refontifies text only at
most until the next open paren in column zero.  ISTR that Emacs behaved
like that in the past - maybe I got used to it back then, maybe also my
memory fails.

I dislike electricity.
