Performance, say, when scrolling, should be a function of the number of pixels being redrawn, and the buffer that's being drawn. It shouldn't be related to the number of buffers. Is the slow down you're seeing definitely from having two buffers open, or is it perhaps just that the second one is clearly slower, even when it's the only one open?

I'd quite like to see things like the console output displayed as full-size buffers, rather than small windows which don't get treated as 'proper' panels. The same way emacs dumps everything into new buffers.
Yep, that's the plan!

It'll certainly be an option via theming, yes. Sublime Text X already has much better support for being themed than Sublime Text does - the .sublime-theme files now use an entirely different format.
