For its working, @code{replace-buffer-contents} needs to compare the
contents of the original buffer with that of @code{source} which is a
contents of the original buffer with that of @var{source} which is a
costly operation if the buffers are huge and there is a high number of
differences between them. In order to keep
@code{replace-buffer-contents}'s runtime in bounds, it has two
optional arguments.

@var{max-secs} defines a hard boundary in terms of seconds. If given
and exceeded, it will fall back to @code{delete-region} and
@code{insert-buffer-substring}.
@code{max-costs} defines the quality of the difference computation.
If the actual costs exceed this limit, heuristics are used to provide
a faster but suboptimal solution. The default value is 1000000.
