I started to look at David Fetter's patch to enable "\timing on/off", in
addition to toggling the mod with just "\timing".
I gather that the conclusion of the thread "Making sure \timing is on",
was that we should leave \H and \a alone for now, because it's not clear
what "\H off" would do. And \a is already documented as deprecated; we
might want to do that for \H as well.
Here's a patch, based on David's patch, that turns timing into a \pset
variable, and makes \timing an alias for \pset timing. This makes
\timing behave the same as \x.
I also moved the help line from the "External" section into
"Formatting". I don't think \timing is "external" in the same sense as
\cd or \! are. Rather, it controls the output, like \x or \pset options.
