I know it's an ancient technology, but the graphics object _does_
support sprites. In my (subjective) experience it makes less
processing demands than lcd or Jitter.
Caveat: I have no experience with how it behaves on Windows.
Last year I revived an old external for drawing arbitrary polygons in
the graphics window, did the port to Carbon in some number of
minutes. It worked great. If someone needed it and, assuming all the
QuickDraw is supported in Windows, I expect I could get it running
New technologies are great, but does that mean you *have* to throw
everything old out? I hear Windows folks still run .BAT files
