I also thought that Bleder did the sub-surfacing in real-time.

I just done what you describe here. One advantage of using nurbs surfaces is 
that you can set the resolution. So if you need a low poly model you just 
reset the resolution of you nurbs surface and reconvert it to a mesh. It's a 
good idea to keep your original nurbs surface and convert a duplicate of it.
