In the past, another important concern for constructs such as "repeat while
the mouse is down" or "repeat until the mouse is up" was that the mouseup
event would sometimes get overlooked in the repeat handler. I don't know if
this issue was ever addressed at a lower level but the possibility of
missing a mouse event, as well as the additional processor use, were
significant reasons for avoiding the aforementioned type of script.
