[O] [PATCH] speedup redisplay of agenda item after change

User-agent: Wanderlust/2.15.9 (Almost Unreal) SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.9 (Goj┼Ź) APEL/10.6 Emacs/23.3.50 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu) MULE/6.0 (HANACHIRUSATO)

I had noticed that with large agendas (several hundred items), any
command that changes and re-displays the current item is slow. For
example something like changing priority with Shift-Up/Down key, can
take a second or two.

Most of that time is spent in (org-agenda-finalize) call, which is
responsible for putting finishes touches, such as fortifying [#A] as
bold when you change priority from [#B].

It seems that even if only single line had changed, the
(org-agenda-finalize) still processes entire agenda buffer, which is
the cause of the slowness.

Following patch changes (org-agenda-change-all-lines) to call
(org-agenda-finalize) for each line changed, with agenda buffer
narrowed to just that line, and it speeds up redisplay of current item
a lot, the Shift-Up changing of priority can almost keep up with
keyboard repeat rate on large agendas.

I was running with this patch for a month, and did not noticed any
problems so far.
