But does that work outside of [cnv], and does that work with 
radiobuttons ?

Anyway, I think that it's better to concentrate on testing large sets of 
GUI elements because it is with those large sets that responsiveness 
problems do occur, and the CPU percentages are rarely obvious (not so 
proportional). The large sets ought to be as realistic as possible, 
though, not insane stress tests. But it's hard to be representative with 
Pd, because everybody is using Pd in a different way.

Perhaps the MTL libraries (by Thomas O. Fredericks) could be good tests, 
because they contain a fair amount of sophisticated and useful GOP 
abstractions meant to be used by Pd users of all levels. But I have rarely 
used them personally.

What was wrong with the Qt dev stuff ? I think that it might be 
enlightening to know that.
