This is the other solution - and I do think it's the best one and pretty valid - for the gesture drawing problems and slowdowns. We would need to completely change our philosophy:

FK the gesture display; the user already knows anyway what he wants to draw and pretty much feels if the gesture has been ok or not. But let's give him an indication that the drawing of the gesture is going on and that the gesture has been sucessfully accepted by the S+ program.
So I propose to change the mouse cursor when the RMB is held and keep it changed (or even animated, could be nice) until the RMB is depressed. Then change the cursor for 1/4 of second to notify user that the gesture has been accepted or not. Whad'ya think?

I'm also toying with the idea of a 128x128 transparent window that sticks to the mouse while drawing, displaying the scaled gesture that's been drawn so far. Like a little preview window so you can see what you're drawing but shouldn't affect performance much at all (someone had mentioned this in a different way before). Though, the constant interpolating and scaling of the point array to render the line may impact performance. I may be able to figure out a better way to handle that. Either way, I like the idea.

That's actually a damn good idea right there =) I'll definitely look into that.
