Yeah, I was wondering why it's so much slower in trunk than in our 
internal images or Croquet. First I thought it's the JIT but then I 
looked at a profile and found EventSensor>>wait2ms called from several 
places in EventSensor and indirectly via Sensor anyButtonPressed .

WTF? This isn't in any of the images I've ever used, does someone know 
why we're doing this? Randomly waiting for 2ms and *no comment* as to 
what the purpose of that wait might be? I'm in favor of ripping this 
out; there should be absolutely no need to wait for 2ms in EventSensor.
