[Urwid] Urwid Esc handling

Is there a way to change how urwid (or maybe it's ncurses, I don't know)
does Esc detection? I'm writing a program with VI-like keybindings, so
Esc is used frequently to change between editing modes. Currently, I
have to hit Esc, then wait a approx 1 second before typing anything else
in order to make it clear to urwid that I am not attempting to enter a
control sequence of some sort. If there was a way to turn that off, it
would be mighty handy.
