Perhaps we can do both? (1)Make it easy to turn off, and (2) adjustable refresh rate? Might even be the same parameter, refresh rate of 0 means do not display meter?

I agree. I'll make it easy to turn off the meters.
I think that I can solve most of the performance problem, though, by
limiting the number of times it tries to redraw per second. I think
that right now it's drawing hundreds of times per second, when it would
be smooth with about 50 times.
