Disable Publish/Update button when already saving

Sorry if there's already a similar ticket, could not find one.

I'd like to suggest discussing disabling the publish/update button in the post/page edit screen when the button has already been clicked. As it stands now, an impatient user can repeatedly click the button and all of the requests are passed to the server. The said server ends up processing the request (most likely when combined with http://php.net/manual/en/function.ignore-user-abort.php) despite not being able to return the outcome to the user.

I'm suggesting a discussion on the subject to outline unexpected issues with the above if there are any.

Realized I had not specifically mentioned that the live-disabling could be achieved via Javascript.

Don't know what version of WP you're using, but in 3.0 (and ever since 2.7 I think), it's already disabled. While sending the request, a little spinner apears to the left.
