Well, I have a small class that does the startup handling for me and immediately runs the code I need.
I did not want to spend the time to port your changes that I saw for 1.4.
And I didnt want to look into Coral...

A simple 'diable transparence' or so, to get a 10x speed up would have been nice.
But I guess that would really mean 'disable morphic' instead...
