blah, blah [Alan if you don't know what you are talking about
why talk at all ?]
One of the main performance issue is Dia's interaction
with Pango (trying to be smart when scaling to match text width)
Another one is eyecandy which we all want, don't we ? Anyway, even
if we don't want it, there is no way back other than sticking with the
old version ...
Vlad : Try to set the environtment variable
which should increase Pango - i.e. font rendering - speed a lot,
if you are using the prebuilt DLLs from tml.
