What I would love to see in X11 is conditional streams. When you throw a command at a shell for example you can say "Do X, Y, Z , ... " but also Do X, Y, Z, ..." and bracketed sets of these Do (Do X, Y, Z stopping on fail) (Do A, B, C stopping on fail) but stop on a failure. That gives you the ability to do more than just batching, since you can batch a sequence of commands for the general case and respond to the failure. My gut feeling (and I've not been doing analysis unlike you folks) is that this would improve things immensely for startup > 7) image transport is a real issue, whether for glyphs or other images. > This is in part due to image sizes having grown due to greater depth > (most people have 32 bits/pixel these days).

Given there are well understood processes for image compression and well understood processes for lossless pixmap compression why do you say this. I'm curious ? Do you oppose the ability to send jpeg for example, or the way XIE kind of grew beyond a way to transport images into a whole nightmare of processing features ?
