... while a large body of working tests makes it much easier to make small improvements to the code, it does have the draw-back of acting as a kind of institutional weight on the design, making big changes much harder in many cases.

I expect the same is true from a large body of working code -- the kind I expect to see accompanying a large body of working tests.

[ambrus]: The 0.2 seconds wakeup is likely a workaround for some bug, but I can't guess what bug that is.
[ambrus]: It's been there since Prima 1.00 iirc
[Corion]: Hmmm... Weird. Maybe it needs that for doing its timers or something. Still weird.
[Corion]: But I guess I'll find out soonish, as my application seems to use Prima for more than just displaying the OpenGL output soonish ;))
[ambrus]: No, I think the timers are handled fine in the event loop, as far as I can see.
[Corion]: So far, I liked Prima quite well as it simply seems to do what I want even if it has an upside-down coordinate system. But it installs from CPAN out of the box and is cross-platform
