It is well known that you don't like GTK+ - fine. But just stop
spreading your FUD against GTK+:

        a) GTK is quite snappy on the neo1973 (GTA01) thus the problem
        is not GTK but the limited memory bandwith on the
        Freerunner/GTA02 due to the glamo chip.
        b) the neod eats up to 60% CPU on the Freerunner (GTA02) because
        it opens all /dev/input/event* and thus it opens the
        accelerometers and get 200 interrupts per second - for
        absolutely nothing. 
        But it massively slows down OM2007.2. 
        And it was *you* who wrote the neod.
