So I think nano should report much earlier than that that there are
too many backup files -- I would say before the delay comes close
to a second.  On my system that would mean some 100,000 backup
files.  If you make twenty backups (of the same file) per day,
you can edit continuously for nearly fourteen years before
hitting that limit.

Presumably the purpose is to stop runaway scripts?
I would just suggest saying 'a lot' rather than 'too many'.
