Hi Dinu,

Honestly, I have no idea. You'll have to try it and see if it works.

What little resources we have for "core" development are going 100%
into the Python 3.3-compatible version at the moment and we are a long
way from worrying about the rendering and graphics primitives right
now. I'll post separately on that in a little while, but the good
part is that, once we get most of the test suite running, we will be
able to consider changes/improvements to fundamentals like this for
the first time in about 13 years...
