I also think 30 cps would be enough, however, the key repeat rate
is not as setting by ESC[n-p sequence. Measured results in v3.1.6
are as follows. Actual key repeat rate does not increase linearly.
^[[1-p : 1 cps
^[[2-p : 2 cps
^[[3-p : 3 cps
^[[5-p : 4.7cps
^[[10-p : 8.2cps
^[[20-p : 14.8cps
^[[30-p : 16.3cps
