*cough* I think history demonstrates that people will try to do
anything they possibly can if the results promise to be cool enough
eventually. If something can be done at all with promising results on
the highest-end available PC, it would be safe enough to assume it
will be common a couple of years later.

Fortunately, Hixie is highly aware of the history of the benighted X11
Image extension - which to implement properly would have required the
equivalent of an embedded copy of ImageMagick :-)
