using the delete key seems to work much better if you tap the key repeatedly as opposed to holding it down.

Well, unless your computer is really slow with anti-aliasing and/or your running a process-hog of an app (coughwordcough), changing the Key Repeat Rate to Fast and Delay Until Repeat to Short under the Keyboard Pane in System Preferences usually makes a difference. In TextEdit, BBEdit and Eudora, this helps a whole lot.

If it is still slow, you might want to consider altering the Turn off text smoothing for font sizes to a higher font ... or chucking your beige for a G4 tower. :D
Note: the above option is for 10.1->10.1.5. I can't remember off the top of my head if the option is available for Jagwire->10.2.2 (i've been a little lazy getting Jagwire installed, though it is on my work computer).
