Thanks. I finally got my xcode install working again and tried just
profiling various actions and I think I know what’s going on.

NSBitmapImageRep is mutable, however it’s built on a CGImage or
something that isn’t, so every time you want to edit an
NSBitmapImageRep it has to copy the entire thing. This is why this
little bit of code to grab the bitmap’s graphics context


is so damn slow and it gets slower as the screensize increases.

I’m now stumped because I can’t actually find any image type in the
documentation that isn’t immutable. I’m sure there must be something.
The Mac port appears to be using IOSurfaces, but as far as I can tell
they can be changed underneath you so aren’t much use for just
updating little bits of the Emacs frame at a time. I must be
misunderstanding something.
