What about in Axe? It wouldn't matter if they were on or off, right?

And just curious: How does Axe draw bitmaps, anyway? Does it plot it bit by bit?

The Bitmap() command uses a TI-OS bcall, it's not an actual Axe routine.

Is there any documentation to how much slower it runs compared to the regular sprite commands?

You can do that with the interrupt feature coming soon.  You just have to be aware that some commands disable interrupts for their duration which could throw off the measurements.  Specifically, any command which draws directly to the LCD most likely has them disabled.  Although if you were running tests with Bitmap(), you would have both of them draw to the buffer to make it even anyway.
