I just test this and it looks pretty bad. About 50% slower than
original Drgeo xo bundle.

I installed the VM and Etoys image your recommended. Then I installed
into this image the drgeo.cs from a PC.
Usability in the XO is close to zero. All Etoys updated that way seems
slow by the way (without any drgeo upgrade).
Damn, this ruined the activity I planed with students tomorrow.
