Any Free Desktop standard for routine image clipboard handling seems to
have been overtaken by events. There might still be room for some
discussion about hi-resolution or hi-precision graphics, but for the
average user the de facto standard is already set and since there's nothing
obviously wrong with it we can move on from there. X content negotation lets
us change our minds later, and GIMP's plug-in architecture lets us make
this modular if we decide that's necessary...
Is there any engineering reason why this shouldn't happen prior to 2.0,
assuming the spirit of Free Time is on our side?
