I just got intermittent rises up to 50% on a dual core 64-bit amd with 
all of the above.

I imagine that the cpu load for movable_box2.pd is due to the number of 
points in the polygon.  I think you could get a 20x20 draggable square with 8 coordinates-- that 
would be equal to the number of points in a radiobutton so maybe that would get down 
to a corresponding cpu load.

I'll try some tweaks later to see if that works.
