Cool! :-)  Conceptually I think this is a great idea, and I remember
seeing something like this in 3D Studio Max that really seemed to speed
up viewport navigation.  However, I think that it would be even better
if Blender could automatically detect when the redraw time has become
long enough that the boundbox drawing mode is required.  So, when the
scene is being drawn, the boundbox drawing mode would not be used until
the redraw time exceeds some minimum value.

Hopefully I'll be able to test the patch tomorrow.
