In system 36.2, with microcode 683, on LISP Machine Ten:
I'm used to typing C-H as a C-U replacement, and haven't bothered to fix up
my Zwei environment to do the right thing, so I often type C-H when I want to
move around quickly; unfortunately, Zwei takes over a second to beep at me and
print the Control-h undefined message and this greatly slows me down.  How about
inspecting type-ahead when about to print an error message and just beep if there's
typeahead (where hopefully the user realizes that something is wrong as soon as
she hears the beep); I guess this isn't really suitable, how about printing
the error message as soon as typing stops (ie, the typist wants to know what
Zwei is beeping about)?
