Enforce time threshold on editor services

The code editor seems to offer some background services (highlighting, indexing, code lookup, mouseover code, etc.) In realistically sized workspace, this can slow development. Selecting text in an editor window results in the mouse icon changing to a processing icon and RSART becomes unresponsive for a time.

If this time is going to be more than 5-10 seconds, realistically more than 0.5 to 1 second, there should be a timeout and an opt out or indication of which service is active so it can be turned off in preferences (which should be possible if not already). Any opt-out should have a functional ?never ask me again? checkbox.

The current services can greatly slow code development.
