Correct. It's disabled by default though.

That's a callback for each MovieClips on the stage (for things like 
onEnterFrame triggering
AND for timeline frames advances). It should be the most time-consuming part 
*after* the rendering cal (m->display()).

It checks what time is it to decide whether or not *timeline* cursor should
advanced. If you want, it's a waste of time to call movie_root::advance before
it's time to advance timeline, and that can be improved by having movie_root
expose a method to tell the GUI *when* it'll be a good time.

Mind you, it's not just FPS affecting this, as AS timers or media streaming
might need to get called faster.
