[PD] spread Gem-computation over several dsp-cycles (?)

This is an optimization if your geometry doesn't change.  A display list
loads all of the vertex, color, texcoord and normal data onto the card and
then just tells the card to render it right from VRAM.  The model object
uses display lists for speed.  If you need 10,000 cubes it would be faster
to make a model of the cube and load it that way.

Cyrille's trick is to set up a render chain and render that once into the
display list.  After that only the gemhead feeding GEMglCallList is rendered
every frame.
