Ivaylo, it's not about squeezing the last bit of performance.
It's about 5 FPS vs 50 FPS.

This part of work is already done by me a while ago. I guess I found the
cause of the hang. The functions calls trace that leads to 2+ minutes hang
on hildon-desktop startup is in attachment, see file "hildon-desktop".

I did a simple "monkey" patch to fix the hang. If you are interested,
please check the second attachment "hang-fix.patch". Note: it's just
quick and dirty workaround, not a real fix. And yes, it's for cogl.

If you guys really want to migrate to new clutter/cogl frameworks, I'd
recommend to stop using deprecated functions.
