I've used scalars with a single rectangle as the visual element-- however, just 
mousing around it looks like numberbox, vradio, my scalars from the demo, 
and a simple filled rectangle can all cause large cpu jumps when displacing or 

How does the cpu usage in my demo compare to your patch where you use 
a radiobutton?

In practice, I've actually used arrays of scalars for a little video game, but the 
sound was secondary.
