[TxMt] feature request: timeout on highlighting

I just opened a 1.5M XML document in TM.  My XML syntax isn't all that 
lean, and it takes a while for TM to highlight everything and become 
responsive.  Currently, I do not know of any way to open a file without 
syntax highlighting.  That'd be one nice thing to have... The other 
would be for TM to pop up a little dialog if highlighting hasn't 
completed after, say, 10 seconds and give the option to abort the open, 
continue highlighting (until done), or open without highlighting.
