JavaFX performance for complex visualisations

Yes, whilst a 3D stress test is vital in the longer term, what we need right
now is something that shows off the true capabilities of 2D JavaFX.

Again though, I agree with Pedro in that we should be aiming for something
as complex as possible.

The problem with 3D is that it exercises *completely* different code paths
from 2D rendering. So it would be good to do a 3D stress test as well,
although that code is not yet available, and it doesn't tell us anything
about the performance of the platform when doing Path, Line, Region, or any
of the other 2D building blocks.=
