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
