Actually I kind of agree. I don't want super 3d knobs - but decent actioned (ie nicely controlled by mouse) reasonable looking plain knobs for me really too.

But actually - because these knobs are just bitmap strips - the only thing that alters how hard they are to draw is simply size (and colour depth I guess - so a very simple knob using 2 bits for colour *might* and could be quicker - but I guess it ultimately would be down to how the graphics drivers deal with them).
