	That doesn't cost much, really.  The time-consuming parts are the
	measuring of text size and keeping parent output records and scroll
	bars up to date.

    Scroll bar updating can indeed be expensive. There's an internal macro
    in 2.0, clim-silica:inhibit-updating-scroll-bars, which can reduce output 
    time by >25%. However, it's not an external/documented macro, and the
    Symbolics and Franz implementations aren't compatible.

Huh?  I wrote this macro myself before Franz split away from everyone
else.  How are they not compatible?  What does the Franz one do now?

    So, is there a supported way to do this? If not, it would be useful if this 
    or something like it could be made part of CLIM's external interface.
