FDOM display is faster mainly because it uses a relatively simple theme. 
Bernd's lightweight themes should give a similar speedup.

Another factor is that some iterations of the fso daemons have been occasional 
resource hogs, causing display slowdowns whichever toolkit you use. This has 
been addressed partly by bugfixes in the python implementations, and for the 
future by the ongoing move to vala implementations of the daemons, starting 
with the most resource-hungry.
