We will be benchmarking the new software to determine the effect of the
waterfall on the systems performance. We may also put in a power spectrum as
well. If it uses too much system time, the user can turn it off. It will be an
option, and it is in the prototype systems we have now (without bit blitting
yet, someone is working on it).
