Sure, but I'm not talking about more widgets => slower speed, I'm talking 
about some widgets + time => slower speed. In other words, the widgets seem 
to be slowing down over time. If this is the case, then this is what we in 
software development might call a Bad Thing.

Yeah, maybe VU was a bad example. This is true of numbers as well - and 
surely displaying a number is a simpler task than displaying a slider?
