Well I think Andrew needs to figure out if the problem is in getting 
events from the VM at the primitive call (IE how frequent is it being 
called) and how often the keystrokes appear. Or is the slowdown in 
passing the events to the interested Morphic/MVC players.

PS yes my website is down, ask my ISP about the nuclear weapon ATT

they are *real* busy right now... At least they've got mail back up 
for me...
