    A first step would be to provide more realistic settings for baud_rate

    that the connection is over a somewhat loaded half-duplex 10 MB LAN).

    And then only enable pre-emptive redisplay if baud-rate is < 200000.

Is it possible to tell whether the X connection is local?  (Do people
still use remote X connections from distant machines to the local X
server, nowadays?)

Yes, every day.:-)

What about the Linux console?  Of course, we can put something in
term/linux.el, but that will take effect even when going through the
net.  Is there a way to distinguish real local use from remote use?

Well, it is the same problem as finding out if a TCP/IP socket is connected to a remote system or not. You can get the remote peer address for the socket and compare that to the local address(es). If the X connection isn't a TCP/IP socket, then it is local (i.e. Unix socket).
