I'm not sure this will be necessary (provided I get this to work at
all); after all, all that the timeout will do is to setup the event
loop 50 times in a second. Computers should have no problems with that
these days; in a snappy Tkinter app, there will be much more than 50
events per second. Furthermore, such a change would not affect
snappiness at all, only efficiency (and only slightly so).
