there is no difference. I would like there to be one, but this involves OpenGL 
/ quality of effects and optimisations inlcuding hardware accelerated 
graphics. All these things are far away and don't affect the statement that 
the 'render' tag is superfluous, since output to a screen is also 
"rendering". it has nothing to do with file/screen/whatnot.

we can just skip the "addOutSTream". since piave could add outstreams any tim 
it encounters an 'outstream' tag. Keep inmind, that piave does not support 
multiple outsreams, though I think it woulf be qute easy to add. like to 
preview what you are doing while rendering.
