I started to talk about this with Leon Shiman of MAS but we didn't have a chance yet to discuss the technical details. Clearly this overlaps in many ways with what MAS is doing. There is a big difference, anyway. MAS is intended to deal with streaming and displaying of real time MM contents while our scope is session persistency, compression and network efficiency. MAS is the solution for MM (but, as I said to Leon, the project needs to leave the lab and go in the wild) but we still need a way to manage images in average X clients (web browsers, office automation applications) that don't have time requirements but can't afford to loose data due to the stateful nature of X protocol.

Hey, if you can do this as loadable extensions that we can distribute
separately, then it would make sense to link the extension to the local
PNG, SVG, etc libraries.  If this is already being done in the lab, how
about using Xouvert as a base for developement work?  We'd love to get
something like that out to the masses for testing.

We definately would at least like to TRY distributing a loadable
extension that renders images in PNG, JPEG, and SVG formats.  Maybe
three loadable extensions, one per format.  If people used it, and it
turned out to show some speed savings (especially over network), that
would be great.
