Interesting idea. However, I'm not convinced that rendering a "raw
svg" versus rendering a svg with a simple stroke/fill applied is going
to result in much difference.

I'm happy to be proven wrong - perhaps you could take an activity as
an example and measure exactly how long the first self.update() call
takes to complete?

If you aren't already, it would be a good idea to use a profiler to
identify with clarity the exact part of the code that is taking the
most time.
