Timeouts, if configurable, probably should be no *less* than 500ms (0.5sec)
to compensate for varying terminal latencies. I don't know if there's a way
to "auto-timeout" if particular bad sequences are hit, or if it's easy to
recognize (and throw out, if necessary) *all* special-key sequences defined
