Re: CLIM philosophy wrt to X.

Are you sure your problem with speed of drawing in CLIM is with CLIM?
It sounds like it's more with Lucid.  I mean that it sounds like you need
a more optimized implementation of the present CLIM specification,
rather than a change to the CLIM specification, to solve your problem
with the speed of drawing lines.

Of course passing #'draw-line* as an argument and calling it with funcall
may be defeating optimizations you would get if you called it directly
(such optimizations are possible, I don't claim to know whether Lucid's
current release does them).  It defeats all inlining of the keyword
processing and the other non-polymorphic processing it may do.
