Yes. You'd be better off looking into developing some sort of autorepeat
debouncing heuristic within Guacamole.Keyboard and contributing that, as it
is something which would make sense to have even though the general case
should probably assume client-side autorepeat. The main issue is making
things work identically across the board (all browsers/platforms) and
avoiding breaking the expectations of applications and remote desktop

I wouldn't recommend just setting the timer interval to a high value.
Besides not working across all platforms, it's a nasty hack. ;)
