This proposal aims to provide an intutive, consistent and quick access to
windows of number 11 and greater - so far accessed through the M-j [0-9]{2}
key sequence.

Instead of prodiving distinct command sequences for windows of a different
amount of digits the sequence M-[0-9]{1,} should suffice to address all
windows from 1 through infinity.

The key idea is that a sequence of digits typed in a rapid fashion (with the
Alt-Key [constantly]* pressed down) is interpreted as the one number of the
window to go to.

Rapid fashion is defined as the following:
The key sequence is considered continued in a rapid fashion until two
successive keystrokes are found to be not two digits pressed less than x
milliseconds apart. Subsequently, setting x, which should be made an option to
0, will disable the feature completely.

Example usage (assuming it does not matter whether Alt is held constantly
while typing the sequence or released between subsequent keystrokes, see

Alt-23, 2 and 3 typed quickly after eachother while Alt is held, eventually
takes you to buffer 23 but will temporarily take you to buffer 2 on the
instant that 2 is pressed.
Alt-2 Alt-3 typed slowly after eachtoher take you to buffer 2 and then to
buffer 3.
Alt-3 Alt-3 typed quickly after eachother takes you to buffer 3 and back (or
the other way arround, if you are already in 3).

* Footnote: If it is possible to implement that releasing the Alt-Key while
typing breaks the sequence, that should be done.
