The deadline served effectively two purposes:
- prioritise blitting over handling control requests,
- pace the thread loop.

I can guess from the commit message that you want to remove the priority 
corner-case (and I don't have any strong opinion on that). But there should be 
some modicum of explanation how pacing works from thereon.

Patches 1-5 look ok, though the control loop is a dying horse being beat.
