Comment (by BevanR):

 Web Workers was suggested as a solution in the issue queue for zxcvbn.  To
 me this seems like the best solution yet:

 - Long passwords can still be strength checked, without blocking the user
 - Strength-checking processes that take too long to be useful (the user
 already changed the password or submitted the form) can be terminated.
 - A new state for the "Strength indicator will need to be introduced:

 Any objections?  If not, I think the next step is to work out if the Web
 Worker feature should be implemented in zxcvbn or in WP.
