If they are that slow, then I'd have to say yes. But a sub bitmap shouldn't be 
more than a regular bitmap.. Are we talking display bitmap or memory bitmap 
(some cards have shit slow glDrawPixels, so drawing memory bitmaps is also 
shit slow). But as a display subbitmap _should_ only use different texcoords, 
it should be as fast as a regular display bitmap :o

Or at least thats how I see it.
