[REBOL] Re: [view] accelerating view...

I should say that I did tests on a super easy vid script:
repeat i count [
off/y: i * 5
ui/effect: compose/deep [gradient 1x0 0.0.0 222.222.222]
;ui/effect: compose/deep [draw [pen white line (off) 1000x500]]
e: now/time/precise print t: to-decimal e - s
print count / t
my computer gives me 17 frames a second... but this should be like 20000...
I mean, one line on a plain background.
I've been using vid a long time and have done a lot of pretty advanced things with it,
but its the first time I realise just how slow it really is.
now I'm thinking of creating a face which resizes to the size of the line (diagonally)
and which floats over the the rest of my ui.
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
