why would one want to view images in st, can't your shell start other graphical programs for that? is st becoming a new kind of web browser now? and why don't you open remote images using a remote file system instead of fucking around with remote shells and then trying to display them in a local terminal?!
i mean even loonix can do this already. sshfs, qiv (or other proper graphical application of your choice). you even have a window manager in your same old project here, why not open some windows already?
