Once again I write about something I shouldn't
write about at all since I don't know how it works.
I could be very, very wrong here... just guessing:
I got a feeling that no calculation (no effects)
is faster than this "optimal code".
OM2008.0808 and earlier was quite fast and
I think adding all kinds of effects is a step
No eye candy means that one could play
music, etc. when scrolling.
Do we really need illume? Why not something
lighter with less/no visual effects, etc.?
What happened with "back to the basics"?
I don't think scalecache can make everything
as smooth as the good old GTK theme, but
it would be nice if I am wrong.
