But if the user pauses for more than 200ms
the expensive redraw will commence and annoy.


Break the redraw up into a number of parts,
each of which takes a relatively short amount of time.

resize() {
     partToDraw = 1;		// Start over.

// Draw the parts.
// If a new resize arrives, the process restarts
// in a short amount of time, without having to
// wait for the complete redraw to complete.
timeout() {
     if( ++partToDraw != numberOfParts )
         singleshot(0,timeout();         // Return to event loop.
