So suppose I'm compiling, and then I start typing. If this feature is
enabled, a dialog would pop up when I press a key? Perhaps instead, we
could add a menu entry next to "Cancel Background Process" along the
lines of "Restart Compilation", that is also only visible when
compiling? Or we could list it as an example in the LFUN doc. e.g.
"consider making a keyboard shortcut for <<command-sequence
export-cancel; buffer-export>> to restart compilation".
