You must mean Peter, Jerry and Oliver's book (credit where due).

I don't think there's anything particular wrong with the approach.  You
can check the shell variable $SECONDS before and after the command is
run to see how much time has expired and only issue the notice if the
difference is large enough.  The example from last October does this by
saving $SECONDS in preexec and the comparing it in precmd, but it can
also be done entirely inside a wrapper like your tnot function.
