processing over 2,000 elements for each frame rendered (hence up to
100,000 per second) - and there was a sizeable performance hit.

The new approach is to render to some intermidiary QImage buffers for
each double line and when complete, convert those to MythUIImage. This
is substantially faster, with a maximum of 13 objects to be rendered per
