Without anything on the screen that reflects the current matrices,
what would be the point of these optimizations?  These optimizations
only make sense when portions of the frame are already on the glass,
because we can then avoid both recomputing and redrawing those
portions, or some of them.  But when nothing is on the glass, these
optimizations will not help, because you must redraw everything, and
AFAIK we don't currently have a redisplay mode where the portions of
matrices that were not recomputed are nevertheless redrawn.
