For most things, Render won't be the bottleneck.

If you read the latest gtk2 release notes, for example, you'll see a
note about small strings being 5X (!) faster in this release.

And if you look at the traces from Keith's and my Usenix paper
of this year, you'll see both GTk and Qt are doing some amazingly
dumb things still....
