[Openmcl-devel] buffering for socket streams

This may be a silly comment, but comparing the performance under Linux 
and OS X for a openmcl+CLX+McClim seems to me to be the only sensible 
first step. There are plenty of very slow GUI things (scrolling 
windows, etc) under OS X (which, fine, may very well be a gestalt 
slowness) that aren't slow in some other random system. A side-by-side 
test might eliminate OS X as the culprit  or at least qualify the % of 
slowdown that *doesn't* come from the OS.
