Yes but as I said in my previous message in that particular case not  
doing it doesn't give you a good idea of the general-case performance  
of the language either. And if you render is too slow you may end up  
blame the language while the problem may be that you are misusing the  
gpu.

This is possible. Iirc on some platforms using vertex buffer objects  
is faster and there are some gl commands that, for the sake of  
performance, should not be put in a display list (e.g. glTexImage2d)  
-- even though they are allowed to be.

Best,
