with Graphics, when should you use endFill?
I ask this, because if I omit the endfill everything still works.
for example I have this
graphics.clear();
var boxes = _engine.dynamicBoxes.concat(_engine.staticBoxes);
for (box in boxes) {
    graphics.beginFill(box.debugColor, .5);
    graphics.drawRect(box.x + box.bounds.x, box.y + box.bounds.y, box.width, box.height);
    // endfill?
    graphics.beginFill(box.debugColor, 1);
    graphics.drawRect(box.x - 0.5, box.y - 0.5, 1, 1);
}
graphics.endFill();
is endFill needed inbetween (or doesnt it even matter?)

also, I was wondering if using a texture would be faster than using Graphics (in case you only need rectangles)

Use endFill when you no longer want the thing you will draw to be filled
endFill just resets the state so that there is no fill happening anymore.
