This was easy to do, it's already in svn, will be out in the next release.

This was also easy, it's also on svn.

Part of the probem is the fact that csound is running in the same
thread as QuteCsound. Unfortunately, running csound in a different
thread is currently not working on Mac. I hope to fix this soon. The
widgets and realtime events are processed every control period, so if
you increase the control period size, you can improve performance.
Adding the line:
ksmps = 512
at the start of your csd greatly improves performance in my case.

This is a planned feature, which I hope to implement soon.
