      It's certainly doable to detect that more than N characters have been
      "typed" in insert mode in the last M milliseconds though, even if you don't
      have access to the input buffer. Or am I missing something?

      In fact, it looks like this is already implemented for "timeout" and
      "timeoutlen", but in that case it's for mapped keys.

      Interesting idea. I'll have to play with it, but I suspect that it'll
      still suffer from "pasted data comes from another dimension". This latter
      problem may be because of a lacking build option in the Fedora build.
