Please don't top-post.

The GL Painters are new, I know that. They've been talking about them  
on the mailing list for months. But they're optional. In cases where  
OpenGL really doesn't work (Like the XBox...) QT painters can be used

You can disable the GL Painters, so then it falls back on the QT  
painters (which is what it does now). I just want to know, relative  
to .19-fixes, what kind of performance hit am I going to take, even  
with the QT Painters.
