I just want to mention I will be doing the first part of my development
(until end of June) on my Macbook. Like other MB users, I am experiencing
severe UI slowdowns (probably due to the Intel GMA chipset). I am currently
using the proposed work-around (disabling double-buffering) but it is pretty
unstable: Blender sometimes crashes for no apparent reason. I'll have a
MacPro for the rest of the summer, so I will be able to release my work
after having tested it on more 'normal' machines. I just hope that will not
be a big issue.

Thanks again for accepting my project,
