That's the flaw in this plan... WebKit controls when the context menu 
is displayed, and all you can do is modify it in the 
WebKitWebView::context-menu or WebKitWebPage::context-menu signal 
handler... which doesn't give you any opportunity to use a timer.

This is solvable, we just need to come up with an API proposal.
