  Which things?  const fixes are straightforward: if you mess them up, it 
doesn't compile.  The fact of the matter, though, is that some of this stuff 
is so broken that it's hard to imagine making it worse.  I'm trying to fix it 
now, and as I go through, I'm finding things that are very slow or incorrect 
(including API-wise).  That's covered in items 2 and 4 of my list of things 
acceptable during the freeze.  What wouldn't be acceptable is simply going 
through and optimizing unrelated code such as the line curve painting 
algorithm.  View objects need a lot of work though, and they have to be fixed 
before we release.

  Performance in view objects is certainly important because it can heavy cpu 
load and backlog other operations in Kst.  It also directly affects script
