O_o ... I feel like 230 *microseconds* feels about the right time, and
~100 microseconds for rendering.

Umm, no. I would expect 240fps is the modern MINIMUM for a desktop
app, you can easily make it that fast.

Incidentally, we have a multimedia library workgroup happening to
build out a flexible and as-un-opinionated-as-we-can gfx and gui
libraries which may serve a wider number of users than most existing
libraries, perhaps you should join that effort, and leverage the perf
experts we have?

There's a channel #graphics on the dlang discord.
