      /* Install an asynchronous timer that processes Xt timeout events
         every 0.1s.  This is necessary because some widget sets use
         timeouts internally, for example the LessTif menu bar, or the
         Xaw3d scroll bar.  When Xt timouts aren't processed, these
         widgets don't behave normally.  */

Would it be safe to turn this off if no X events have been received
for a certain time?  I don't know.

If that is not safe, I think we are stuck with this, at least for now.
Changing this would probably take a lot of work and would need time
for debugging.

I still think it would be useful for someone to determine whether this
really has a substantial effect on laptop power drain rate.
