although robin has probably torn apart a lot of the old code, this
feature is actually based on code that was added to ardour nearly 5
years ago as part of the animatics project from the center for music
technology @ university of glasgow. the basic idea of a track that
displays RGB(A) graphics along the timeline and gets the data from an
external server was added then. robin has "just" made this work for
video rather than the somewhat different data that the animatics
project was dealing with. i stress the "just" because there is really
a lot more involved in his work. but the basic idea is not new.

given that robin wrote (x)jadeo too, i am sure he is aware of the
plusses & minuses of both approaches.
