Well put there, hadn't even considered that. I'm not quite the heavy

Indeed eliminating X is often quoted as a silver bullet for getting
speed without really justifying it much at all. Also good points about
it seeming unlikely that the core GUI stuff is really profiled much, and
having a reliable, widely used and documented graphics platform etc.
