Is it possible to use both the Key Repeat & the Press and Hold functionality in OS X Mavericks? How?

I write in English, French and German on a Macbook's US keyboard often. I really like the Press and Hold accent popups, but I also need the Key Repeat functionality to work decently with iTerm2, ssh, vim, sublime and so on.


For every app you want key repeat to work in, run

defaults write <bundle-ID> ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

…then restart the app.
