There is no 'install' capability. I could put one in, its just that I don't 
like attempting to tweak other peoples computers so had the startBristol 
script look for its libraries, binaries and bitmaps in its own 
subdirectories. The main issue is with the bitmaps and memories, they don't 
really have a 'correct' location.

Yes, the patch transparencies are a bit of a performance hog, that is really 
noticable with the memories as to maintain this layer each patch has to be 
independently removed. This is not really necessary for memories, I still 
intend to implement a 'clear all' option that is actually implemented in the 
engine (it was needed to ensure that bristol and brighton were in agreement 
on the patches.
Optimising all the color management and bitmap rendering code is on my 
wishlist which will improve that also. At the moment it has absolutely no 
optimisation and yes, that is now noticable. Since the transparency layer is 
also going to be used for other features I will work on some changes.
