Here's my proposed patch to fix bug 5880, attached as bug5880diff.txt.
I'm not sure if I understood all the code but my patch seems to give the
same results. The large reduction in execution time does make me wonder if
my patch is wrong.
The cause of the slowdown when changing language for a large amount of text
is that a change notification is sent for each char format modification to a
text run. When the View gets a char format change notification, it gets the
character format for the entire selection. This is an O(n) operation. When
you do this for all the text fragments in the doc, you've got an O(n^2)
Proposed fix is to defer the notifications until after the character format
change has occurred for the entire selection. After the change, the
notification is sent out.
This patch will affect any operation which changes the format for a text
selection using PD_Document::changeSpanFmt. Other similar operations which
don't go thru this codepath may require similar mods.

8500ms => 120ms on the test document from bug 5880.
