FYI: There is a method to read (.currentfps) and set (.targetfps)  
framerate for SVG in Opera. Something similar could be considered  
specified and exposed elsewhere.

FYI: Exposing a manual trigger for GC is simple, and there is already a  
method to do this in Opera. The advice on how to use it is very simple;  
don't! However, for testing purposes or in order to understand the  
performance characteristics, this method might be helpful. You might want  
to play with this to see if and how much manual GC helps.
