Is there a way, or should there be a way to render a scene in lower 
quality modes like wire or OpenGL shaded mode?

The thought is that for complex animations the ALT-A preview is _way_ 
too slow to get a good sense of timing.  There is a button for 
"render current view" that puts the current view into the image 
preview window.  It seems it should be simple to do that but put the 
results for every frame of a scene into an image clip, so it can be 
viewed real-time.  This way you don't waste several minutes rendering 
each frame to find out the animation has a mistake that wasn't 
obvious until played back at full speed.

a lot of Blender as an engineering visualization tool...  Too busy 
using Blender to code right now.)
