#100 Need option to turn on VBL syncing


With large windows and a complex scene, moving the camera around produces visible tearing.

One solution would be to provide an API to enable VBL syncing, using this snippit: <http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn2014.html#Section5>

By default it should be off to not disturb existing code.

    On the Mac (Carbon), there is now a draw context option to turn on VBL syncing, kQ3DrawContextPropertySyncToRefresh. I don't know if there are equivalent options on Windows and Unix.
