Where does one still find a slow connection these days?  I've tried it over
the slowest connection I could find (which is still fast, I suppose) -- the
only thing I notice is that there is a little pause now and then.

When holding down <Down> to scroll continuously through a file, I find the
jumpy scrolling more annoying than the quarter-second pause now and then.
In fact, when doing smooth scrolling the pause is more obvious and thus
less of a hindrance than when doing jumpy scrolling.

Having to restart nano I don't find an issue.  And if jumpy scrolling
really gives a better experience on a remote machine, the user will put
'set jumpyscrolling' in the nanorc of that machine.

A machine that is accessed sometimes locally and sometimes remotely?  ...
The user will have to learn to use -j when working remotely.  If the user
can remember how to toggle to jumpy scrolling they can also remember to
use -j.
