Hmm... not really: i still can see the old tab for a fraction of a
second there, after the buffer is gone and a new one selected.  I
couldn't tell for sure if it's faster than before, but maybe it is.  So
it seems that that time is spent by `w3m-tab-line` to do its job (i have
~20 tabs open, in case that matters), not waiting on idle timers...

The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a
torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an
oracle, is inborn in us.
