I'm not fully understand the discussion about accuracy WRT GUIs. Of 
course you need to draw things accurate. And my interjection WRT 35-FPS 
was just to give an idea about the possible achievable performance. I 
like desktop apps that are fast and small, nothing more.

Exactly. Our goals is to create a GUI framework which you can use to 
make desktop apps without caring about the OS specifics (which doesn't 
mean we are limiting in a way that you can't care if you wish). For 
this we are creating a set of building-blocks that fit perfectly 
together following a radical KISS and minimal dependency strategy.

If you want, you should be able to maintain a desktop app using a 
specific version of the framework for 15+ years, without running into 
any limitations.
