The patch removes the "emit those signals" bit.

I don't know how vte works internally, but it would be good to research

- Does proper a11y depend on those signals?

- If it does, then how often do those signals really get emitted?  Once
per character?  What happens when you do "ls -l" - does a screen reader
read out everything to you?

- Can the a11y implementation for vte throttle those signals, and not
re-fetch the contents unless the signal has not been emitted for N
milliseconds?  Think of the "ls -l" case above.
