IMHO, This thread is not about replacing drawstuff but about an user
seeking a graphic lib for its own work.
Drawstuff fill the simple visual feedback need of a vanilla ode distribution.

IMHO, Drawstuff "speed" is a not that important. Better would be an
effort on a clean and visible debugging interface:

- simple in screen gui like start, pause, stop, slider to change CFM
and ERP for instance,
- Contact point show/hide.
- Normals show/hide.

Perhaps a backport of how Bullet does that. Having that in Ode vanilla
distribution would be a great thing, easing user experience,
understanding and tweaking.
